What I liked

I loved how the play referenced Oscar Wilde and his decadent philosophies and bon mots. He celebrity in his day certainly allowed him to publicly flaunt the conventional morality of his day, at least for a while. The performers all inhabit their roles: the smitten photographer who isn’t afraid to mix business with pleasure, the morally dubious manager always eager to exploit Hollywood’s latest “It” girl, and the star herself, who drunk with power is corrupted beyond redemption.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

Fame and fortune are the ticket to the freedom we all crave. Yet at what point do we as human beings, being totally free from the bonds of conventional morality cease to be human and become monsters? A sexy, witty and incisive examination of the role of celebrity in society.
