The Third Howl, by Patrick Cuccaro
A Howling Failure
Thursday, December 14, 2006
0.0
Appalling. Th8rluvr's comments are, if anything, generous. There **are** a couple of cute numbers but the show itself is a dismal 100 minutes, the music is pedestrian, the lyrics sophomoric and none of the performances are affecting. That includes Hendrickson's who has some talent but has been poorly directed (she spends most of the show sitting on staircase!) and even worse, badly musically directed (she has the voice but she can't sing the material, as least not the night I saw the show).

Note to Zachy: When a theatergoer pays to see a production -- especially $20 or more -- at a community theater (which is what TD is, regardless of what it may call itself) or anywhere else for that matter, you are entitled to see a **production** -- not a work in progress. There is a time and place for those, too, but it not on the mainstage of a theater that is advertising a finished product for sale.

Theatre Decatur ought to be embarassed, and ashamed of itself as well. The show desperately needs worskhopping, and passing it off as ready for an audience is a disservice to the writers, the cast and, most importantly, the audience. No wonder there were 20 people there on a Saturday night; what little word of mouth there's been has been awful.
