The Sunshine Boys, by Neil Simon
Fabulous production!
Friday, September 22, 2006
This was the first time for my husband and I to see a show at this theatre. We were very impressed with the quality of the show and the theatre. The cast did a fantastic job, especially with it being opening night. We'll definitely be back at Big Top in the future!

Cinderella Confidential, by Eric Coble
Fabulous show

I failed to post earlier, but my husband, 2 kids and myself went to the last Saturday performance and enjoyed it immensely. The kids were mesmerized. I thought the actors were incredible and the show was very well done. Kudos to everyone involved!

The Miracle Worker, by William Gibson
Good show....

I also there on opening night. There weren't many people there - appeared to be mostly people that knew someone in the show. The cast did a great job considering that I found out afterwards that they were given basically a month to learn lines and get prepared. Having more time to prepare for this volunteer production would have definitely have helped I'm sure. There were a couple of scenes that didn't make sense, i.e. the one where Annie was locked in the room and Keller told his son to get the ladder, but then gave her a piggyback ride out of the room. If one was locked out from a 2nd story house you couldn't give them a piggy back ride out - especially without a ladder. Did I miss something here? The lady playing Annie was fabulous and realistic.

The theatre itself needs some repair work. The seats were squeaky (hello - WD-40 anyone?) and many were ripped. Certainly someone could invest a little time to do repair work with upholstery thread on the seats. A person paying $16 to see a show should have a seat in good repair.

I was surprised that the director of the show opened it up and was wearing shorts and a shirt. I've never seen that done before - usually the director is wearing at least business pants and a dress shirt. I was more dressed up than he was and I was a spectator!

Again, overall I'm sure that by the end of the production run later this month the kinks will be worked out as the actors/actresses have more time to get familiar with their lines. Perhaps in the future the cast should be given more time to prepare so that spectators are given the quality that they deserve for the ticket price. I've certainly seen shows that were cheaper in ticket price and that were better performed because the cast had more time to prepare.
