I saw BOUNCE at Opening Night of the previews here in CHICAGO.I wrote my observations here the next morning.I didn't love BOUNCE.I didn't hate BOUNCE.I know it was a show in progress.I will see BOUNCE again at the closing night performance.I hope the pacing and staging are tightened up; if not I'll anxiously await a review from Washington, DC. The creative process always brings surprises, for better or worse!I have never seen Michael Riedel.I never want to see Michael Riedel.What are his theatre credits; even any from high school productions, or what?Such a vicious old king/queen!And I have seen a lot of vicious old one's in my time!I somehow think Prince, Sondheim et all will survive Riedel or a BOUNCE-ing flop! They ARE theatre to their marrow. They are resilient! They BOUNCE. Riedels story should be called LUNGE!And yes, I did buy the BOUNCE Beachball from the Lobby store!I wouldn't buy a RIEDEL ball of any kind from the Lobby store!---unless I saw it being cut off!
