Looks a little boring to me, but I am not a fan of the show to begin with.

No the theater is not really that small but I believe this is the intention that they were looking for. There was no need to destroy the intimacy of the piece with them playing instruments across a 50 foot stage.

yeah, makes sense. I was just asking cause the stage looks kinda small from the photos, so I didn't know how big the theater was. I wish i could see it. not sure if its worth the 7 hour drive.

I agree. It looks pretty boring. I don't think I could sit through it. I'm not a huge fan of the music, so seeing it like this would probably make me hate it more.

I love that 3 or 4 pictures make a show, that is clearly about the audio more than the visual, boring.

The theatre is far bigger than the seating chart makes it look, IMO.

I love that last photo; I didn't see that one at the Playhouse.

I just came back from Cincinnati. It's not boring. I think the show could benefit from color, perhaps, in a kind-of cliché metaphorical way -- you know, everyone in color and Bobby in all black, or something. But the color and mimimalism help to update it -- it's sexy and modern.

There's a wall of production photos in the lobby at the theatre... I took some photos of them to share. The pictures are glorious, but my photos didn't turn out that well, unfortunately.

Here they are:

I love this concept.

Neither, just my silly flash.

oh wow! looks sleek and sophisticated and more modern than other versions of "Company" i've ever seen.

i hope it comes to Bway, John Doyle has such a unique eye for presenting well-known works in a totally original way. He makes it feel like i'm seeing and hearing Sondheim for the very first time, which i think we all can agree is fab-u-lous!

what other shows do you think Doyle should try his hand at?

I'm not a fan of how this looks. It looks boring. Of course, it doesn't matter being a Sondheim show I could sit through it 100 times.

I'm still a little perplexed as to why this all seems boring. There's not a lot of STUFF to look at, but you have people singing, acting, dancing and playing instruments at the same time. You don't need objects and set pieces and pretty colors to entertain you -- there's plenty to keep you busy and engaged. There's so much going on, just in the hands of these actors. Same with Sweeney, IMO.

i think what Doyle has done is to emphasis Sondheim's music and also the words and lyrics, he has distilled his productions to give these the main impact - but it's more than a "concert" performance because it takes place in a specific world where these people can say these things in a natural, but still presentational, way.

Emcee.

I'm eager to hear your thoughts on Walsh's "The Ladies Who Lunch" and how Laws handled "Gettting Married Today."

And to expand. Hm. The Ladies Who Lunch was alright. I know it was intended, but her voice drove me up. the. wall. I don't think I'd call Walsh boring, like I've heard some people do, but she was almost too deadpan there and kind of blah. I'm not sure what I'd like to see done with it to make it better, though, which probably makes my assessment sort of moot.

Getting Married Today was one of my favorite parts, and one of the funniest. Fantastic across the boards.
