Season's Greetings, by Alan Ayckbourn
Puppet Show
Sunday, November 18, 2007
5.0
The puppet show was so great - what a brilliant device that Bill Murphey came up with! Bill had the best lines and we were like, OMG, he is so funny.
Dori and Chris Ensweiler's scene of making out at the end of act one was also way-cool - we nearly died when the rest of the family were revealed at the top of the stairs looking down at the the pair - OMG!

We really laughed at this show - so much that we were so glad that we took acid tabs - OMG - did we have an attack or what. We were like - what's up with our stomachs man - we laughed so hard at that little dog Waggims that we nearly vented.

There are cool bags for sale after the show also which we bought. Maybe other theatres could sell bags advertising their shows - or even posters or stuff. What a great idea as now I will never forget this show.

Pete Thommasso's character work was ebulient and we absolutely split our sides when he pulled the knife out at Clive. Chris's face was a picture and he is a brilliant acter. Pete's acting was also just brilliant. Way cool. Pete should act more as he is wasted just doing one show this year.

Mark Pitt was alright as Neville but it just seemed as though he was playing himself. He threw lines away and it was like he phoned it in. Dori was good and really got pissed at Nev for good reason. Nev is a chauvanistic man who is interested only in his monkey so obviously she would be bored and want sex with Clive (Chris E in rare form). I loved Rachel (Casey) and I loved Scott as Edward.

Shelly McCook deserves an oscar for this play and Megan Hayes is really cute in the role of Pat.

Hey - was Shannon Eubanks (dir) in a soap?
