I loved this production! Sci-fi is a bold choice for theater – an alien world in a black box forces a lot to the imagination, but Alien used straightforward dialogue, strong characters, and exceptional makeup to create a vivid, fully realized new galaxy complete with complex and fascinating new races. I especially enjoyed that the makeup, prosthetics, and costumes for each character were similar enough to indicate one people but still unique to each individual. Each scene simply written so the honesty of the story shines. The actors, equally honest, equally memorable. And sword fighting. Sci-fi with sword fighting – good sword fighting – how can you beat that?!
