MEH ...

Pre-curtain, director announced that "tonight so-and-so will be played by so-and-so" -- not being familiar with the cast, I barely paid attention as I've been to shows in the past where this announcement is made and it typically makes no difference to the overall performance; an understudy shouldn't stand out to the audience. Appx 20 min in I became more and more aware that every cast member who had spoken lines in the show was carrying around a black notebook. Seems that the understudy was unprepared to go onstage without a crutch, so the solution was to let EVERYONE take their lines onstage with them. This was very distracting, not to mention unprofessional -- it felt like I'd paid to watch a dress rehearsal. The show is ok -- I have huge appreciation for what it takes to do what they do -- but chemistry is lacking. Kudos, however, to Michael Park who is beyond believable as the Reverend, and Michael X. Martin who really does steal the show as Wes, Ren's new-found friend.
