Ben did warn me that this was experimental theater, and it was – a mixture of song, video, dance and acting. I found no fault in that – the actors were amazing, and the pacing was quick.
The story concerned Ben’s search for meaning in life, and ran the gamut from an early childhood incident involving an injury to his head, to his search for love of either sex to his drug-induced journey into mythology.
The homoerotic theme seems to be quite rampant at this year’s show as two of the plays I saw on Friday involved the topic.
Ben’s treatment of the topic came both in the form of video and, to a lesser extent, acting, and was handled tastefully.
Kudos to Ben and his cast for a good job of handling some difficult material.
