The Foreigner, by Larry Shue
Great Show!
Monday, February 23, 2004
Yes, I am affiliated with Kudzu but I don't give a darn whether or not someone should review something based on whether they know a lot about the company and the people or not, because one thing is for sure, I know a good thing when I see it.
And the Foreigner was a good thing. It was really funny and the comedic timing was perfect. I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time. At first I had my doubts about the Foreigner at Kudzu, but since The Foreigner is one of my all time favorite shows, I decided to go see it anyways. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.

There were many standouts of this already magnificent cast. Andy Meeks as Ellard was freakin' hilarious. He did a great job with the character and really dove into the character's inner self, exploring the many facets of the character and showcased them well on stage. I have to say he was my favorite.
Jason Meindhart as Charlie was very good too. Although he had the least lines he was one of the most interesting to watch. I often noticed myself look at him and his reaction during some of the duller scenes (which were very very few and far between). The other standout that I really liked was Jeannie Hinds, who also owns the theater alongside her husband, and to say she did very good is an understatement. Her performance was spectacular and I looked forward to every time she was on stage, and I especially enjoyed the interaction between her and Charlie. They communicated really well on stage and were very very funny together.

The only thing I would gripe about is how long the blackouts were. sometimes they seemed to last 2 or 3 minutes (although it wasn't that long). Other than that spectacular show, and the cast and Director should be well applauded for their work. Congratulations!
