My overall impression

I loved this. I thought it was so beautifully done. And the way contemporary, Shakespeare, and physical theater intertwined…I was so impressed. And this was a workshop?! My goodness, if you guys keep going down this road you’re on you’re going to have an amazing piece of art that will keep people talking.

I think Galen Sato as the doctor was a bit of a miscast, he is too young for the part. It’s like he’s supposed to be tired of seeing the same case over and over and over again, but the most he could be is a resident. And though he did a fantastic job, he’s just too young to play worn-out. However, Megan Ruble, holy sh*t. I thought her performance was outstanding. She never played an “idea” of crazy, she was just so true to Ophelia’s circumstances and it was heart-wrenching.

Of course, this play wouldn’t have been nearly as fantastic if it didn’t have the talent and dedication from the whole cast and crew. Jaymie Bellous did a fantastic job with a play that had a lot of components and I can’t wait to see what the future brings to this young company!
