What I liked

We were absolutely delighted and amazed at the quality of the owl and the pussycat. Since the very first moment when it started, we could see the complexity of the relationship so masterfully depicted by the actors and how easy it was for them to deal with unpredictable situations, such as in one specific moment a set of keys fell on the ground. However, they kept going without addressing the issue. What is most incredible was the amount of memorization they had to go through. This is a solid one hour of exchange without them faltering or forgetting lines. What was also amazing was their total familiarity with one another which was very clear right from the beginning.

What I didn't like

I think there should be more enforcement on the Lobby for silence while other plays are happening. Also, the door to our part of the theater was really loud when opened and it promoted a distraction.

My overall impression

Zach and Marlies were high caliber actors which I will not hesitate to see again. Marlies was dynamic, witty and very sensual and funny. Zach was perfect, impersonating someone who was not comfortable with himself and at the same time, looking for companionship. These two young actors have a lot to look for in the future. Congratulations on showcasing this play at your theater.
