My overall impression
Tommy Smith’s WHITE HOT is a fast paced roller-coaster ride that keeps you on the tip of your toes- as if constantly on the edge of falling into a dangerous and dark unknown. Coupled with the smart and thoughtful direction of Caitlin Hart and the brave and daring performances of Michal Sinnott, Karina Wolfe, Christopher Illing and Arthur Keng, this show is sure to keep you so riveted that by the end you may find yourself gasping for breath. Rarely have I ever been so enthralled with a piece of fictional work that all else fades away- Facebook, twitter, and instagram cease to exist and all that is left is the story unfolding before you. A story that refreshingly questions the way we live our lives, the way we deal with the people in our lives, the way we deal with the pain within us, and those deep, dark desires we so rarely express. Afterwards, I would suggest grabbing a drink and discussing the experience with a loved one, or confident stranger so as not to stifle and not to forget the thoughts and emotions that will surely be brought up after viewing this show. In short, GO!
