Valentino review: "So many clever lines!"

The second review of Valentino: a play in verse at the Hollywood Fringe Festival comes from HFF Panelist Jacqetta Szathmari, who admits right off that she's a "sucker for verse."

She goes on to call Valentino "a driven man who is not afraid to get medieval," and adds, "If you are looking for big drama — here it is."
