Bell, Book, and Candle, by John Van Druten
Decent
Monday, October 25, 2004
3.0
C'mon people. It wasn't that bad. It was almost good. Rather than rehash all other reviews, I will say that I agree with most of what has been said: the set was decent (could have been ALOT better though - lacked imagination, creativity, and seemed kinda cheap), the costumes WERE very good, overall the acting was not too shabby. Highlights: Coco Chalfant & Charles Green were fun. Eric Roach had some pretty good bits. Lows: Shawna Tucker was not right for this role AT ALL. She seemed kinda dowdy, more matronly than womanly. Lacking in seduction, sparkle, and energy. Jason Vaughn - ok, to some extent, i agree with the last two reviews. But, to his credit - I would like to offer the difference between "realism" and internal acting, and "gesture" acting -- his tempo was just different than the rest of the group. The rest of the cast would be comfortable in Brecht, while Mr Vaughn would appear quite natural in Hedda Gabbler or Tennessee Williams. perhaps due to poor direction, you kinda get the sense that Mr Vaughn was instructed to diminish his own persona throughout the play in order to diminish his "appeal" and frumpify himself. The casting of Ms Tucker as his love interest was poor. Biggest low: most of the characters seemed to wonder where the heck they were most of the time, and had no idea what play they were in, or what they were supposed to do with themselves. My wife went with a group of girlfriends last week and swears she had a different impression. From the reviews, I gather you either hate this show or love it.
