As to Franklin Shepherd, I agree with all of the praise for Mark Umbers' performance. As has been noted, he is the most difficult character to get right because, IMO, he is not the bad guy his "friends" portray him to be. His only fault seems to be ambition - he wants to move on when those around him want him to stay in place. "I don't make that a crime", to quote one of the lines in Good Thing Going. The only unsympathetic thing about him is his success. His friends desert him - not the other way around - yet he ends up as the heavy of the piece. It's a fine line the actor has to walk here and Umbers does it brilliantly.

I also liked the set. Felt very LA.
Damian Humbley and Josefina Gabrielle were great. I think she's the best Gussie I've seen - brilliantly played and for me, the stand-out performance.
