My overall impression

I would be quick to caution the more conservative Los Angeles theatre crowd about this show, but Sarah Doyle’s Anaconda, while almost too minimalist and under staged, is smart, edgy, and well crafted. The show takes it’s audience on an unexpected journey through the world of a Defense Attorney , who’s life comes crashing down after he’s asked to take on a case connected to his dark past. It’s slow to start, but certainly picks up when it needs to. With stand-out performances from it’s supporting cast of Jordan Ballard and Jeremy Glazer, and a gripping, emotional final scene courtesy of power house Jonathan Roumie, patrons have something that they can certainly look forward to, in addition to a tight, intriguing script.
