My overall impression
I really enjoyed this show. I was expecting just a comedy and got much more! It was also quite dark at times which was delicious.
Overall the story was very good, the acting was good. I enjoyed the ENTIRE casts performance… All of their characters were interesting. I especially liked Jesse Holcombs performance.
I will not blow the ending for you but I almost blurted out “WOW” as it was happening.
I would love to see the mothers character fleshed out a bit more. She has some very quirky aspects but I am not sure they always make sense to what’s going on. That said, she was very engaging throughout.
There are a few issues with being able to see cast members offstage moving into position and a few hiccups in scene changes… Who cares! all is forgiven for a new work that delivers.
LIGHTING: The lighting was decent but will hopefully have an actual designer in the future. Regardless, it was a huge improvement over the musical I saw in the same space earlier in the day.
SET DESIGN: They didn’t have a whole lot in the way of a set but what they did have worked.
– SPOILER? I loved the collage… and even though there was little mystery as to what it was going to be… I wasn’t sure how it would look.
SOUND DESIGN: I loved all of the music that was used in this piece.
