BWW Reviews: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Fascinating Production of GOODBWW Reviews: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Fascinating Production of GOOD
by Chris Gibson - Oct 18, 2012

Playwright C.P. Taylor's work, GOOD, is a piece of theater guaranteed to make the audience think. That's a good thing. Too often, things are so cut and dry that the viewer isn't really required to ponder what they've just seen, they simply digest it and move along. But, Good stays with you, and makes you wonder just what it would take to make a person conform their values and beliefs in an effort to get ahead, even if meant the attempted extermination of a whole race of people. The St. Louis Actors' Studio has put together a fascinating and engaging presentation that truly makes you ask this question.
