What I liked
We loved the quality of all the actors, but again, to be honest, the writer of the play’s role needed to be stronger… (not that we didn’t like him- we did).
What I didn't like
As much as we loved the show we all three agreed that actors should act and directors should direct (not do both). We all thought it would have been a stronger performance with a separate director—this is true for even top actors – it’s just too much to direct oneself as the actor/director often misses things, by being engaged in two roles. One thing I did not care for was the shaking scene of the girlfriend-very unnecessary. Enough said.
My overall impression
Me and my two adult daughters agreed this was a great play… one daughter said the surprise actor spoke EXACTLY what she was thinking.
It was a clever play
-we loved the production humor —we laughed a lot & the criminal did a terrific and convincing job of scaring us (he was very believable). All in all, it was a great play/performance and I would definitely recommend it-one of the best plays of the Hollywood Fringe. It skillfully combined pain and humor.
