Deathtrap, by Ira Levine
Dead Horse
Friday, May 7, 2004
1.0
I don't want to beat a dead horse but the first two reviewers said it all. What bothers me is that if you don't have the resources to produce a play like "Deathtrap", choose something else that you can put the proper production values into. It only goes to show that if you try hard enough, you can murder any script. No pun intended.

A great show

This was my first visit to the Clarkston Campus and was not sure what to expect. I was very impressed by the theatre and the show.
The set was fantastic and worked very well. It was well designed and kept the show running very smoothly, which is important, due to the length. My only criticism was that the big doors in the middle were very noisey during many of the changes involving them.
The costumes were wonderful and I was impressed that they were all made for this show and were not rentals. I did feel that the reporters costumes could have been a little brighter to match the rest of the show.
The lighting overall was good, and many of the lighting effects were very dramatic. There were a few time when the chorus was on stage that left and right were totally in the dark and this was distracting to have people on stage in a number that were not lighted at all.
The music and orchestra were wonderful under the direction of Susan Sigmon.
Mary Nye, Shelly Murphy and Steven Benton were all excellent in their respective roles. Matthew Carter and Alli Simpson were also equally excellent in their roles. The chorus was very strong and fabolous performances were given by all.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable performance and I was very impressed with the show. I will look forward to seeing future productions.
For those of you that missed it, I would strongly suggest you not miss the next one.
