So I saw Part 1 yesterday. For the first 15 minutes or so, I saw "another bunch of bitchy queens" trading zingers. It took me awhile to get into it. I DO agree with many of you that the play tries to be very self-important, and that some scenes are amazing, and the end of Part 1 is wonderful. The theater was filled with guys like myself "of a certain age" who lived - survived - from the beginnings of the AIDS crisis through today. I DID have to sleep on it, as they say, to really have my emotions elicited. I'm glad I chose to see this, and plan to see Part 2.
Both of these shows were hugely disappointing to me. I was looking forward to both of them a great deal.Have you considered The Gazillion Bubble Show instead?Kidding. But I would maybe say Slave Play only b/c you can see it all in one shot. It's like 1/5 the length of The Inheritance & you'll only have to waste money one on ticket instead of two. :P
Oh sorry-- I didn't realize this post was from a few weeks ago & that you already saw The Inheritance Part 1.Welp. Glad you enjoyed it. Here's hoping you like Part 2 just as much.
saw both last week (including part 2) and highly recommend each production. feeling incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to see both The Inheritance and Slave Play
