BWW Reviews: SONS OF THE PROPHET, Thought Provoking, Funny, But flawed at Dobama
The play's last scene finds Joseph in a physical therapy center, interacting with Mrs. McAndrew, a favorite elementary school teacher. The emotional bond between the two is obvious. Unfortunately, the scene ends in midair...not with the required dénouement. On opening night the audience was so unaware that the play was over they sat in silence waiting for the next scene and were visibly surprised to see that the curtain call was enfolding.
CAPSULE JUDGEMENT: SONS OF THE PHOPHET is a brilliant script which gets an acceptable production at Dobama. It's a shame because the quality of the material is superb, and the cast, with more focused guidance, was capable of living up to the positive hype a production of this script deserves.
SONS OF THE PROPHET runs through March 17, 2013 at Dobama Theatre. Call 216-932-3396 or http://www.dobama.org for tickets.
