What I liked

This is more for the producer of the show than anything. Now that I have the distance of time I’d like to apologize.

I was under a lot of personal stress that day and going to the theater was probably not the right thing for me to do. Something traumatic had happened early in the morning and I probably should have just attended to it instead of trying to catch the play. I was feeling really ill, couldn’t focus on the production and wasn’t in the right state of mind.

I know the expectation of the theater and I wasn’t able to meet it that day. Really, I’m sorry about that. I hope I didn’t upset your day.

What I didn't like

I can’t assess anything that I saw that day with a proper context. The beheadings were quite convincing.

I think the only thing was that the french accent + the older english style made some of the dialog more difficult for me to parse. I also wasn’t able to really construct the relationship dynamics that well. Again, maybe these were actually quite clear and I was just not in the right state to pick up the cues. I’m sure there were plenty of nonverbal spacial and color indicators to help establish things … sorry if I didn’t pick up on them.

My overall impression

It was good thanks for putting it on
