Hello, did anyone see the play? I have tickets for this Saturday and wondering what are the thought of people who saw it.

I'm going Sunday. It sounds interesting. I'm concerned that I've not seen or heard any advertising.

This was quite good! There was a cast replacement still on book,(he’s going to be wonderful!), and part of the storyline seems a tiny bit contrived, but all in all pretty solid. It’s up on TDF again and I hope it has a successful run. That Javier Munoz is a handsome dreamboat!

I saw it.

 

For $35.00, why not? 

 

It's a perfectly pleasant evening, with a great set, lighting and acting, but as the previous poster commented, it's more than a bit contrived, and some of the dialogue sounds a little less than natural.

It's hard to discuss this without giving away spoilers, but my main problem is that I am not sure I understand the young girl's motivation in doing the increasingly outrageous things that she does throughout the play.

Anyway, it's not terrible.

I had the same thoughts about the the girl's motivations. I wound up really disliking her character at the end. My favorite part was the intimate seating and the new cast, who read off the book. I hope to see him in other productions in the future. Since I got my ticket on TDF, and my wine was priced higher, I'd say it was worth it :)
