Blue Door, by Tanya Barfield

4.0
Well I know that nobody cares what I have to say, but I liked it. I came away feeling like the play ended with a balance of Lewis' character. I don't feel like it denounced him for being successful, but it denounced him for not wanting to at all acknowledge the past. I liked when Lewis asks his brother Rex if he was free and he simply said " No." I think it's very easy to get confused about what black culture is and isn't. I see what Dedalus is saying, he brought up points which I would have never thought of, but if anything this play has succeeded in at least bringing a dialogue to something that needs more open discussion. I was happy to look at my fellow audience members and see so many different faces. Not just racially, but old and young. I think that this was the most diverse audience that I have ever been to.

Basically the only times I really laughed were when Tess Malis Kincaid was on stage. I thought Brik Berkes was sweet, and I think he's a wonderful actor. It was interesting to see the dimensions of his character. I found that I liked him even though I strongly disagreed with his views, which is something I don't do enough of, in the theatre, or away from it. This play helped me to get away from my everyday political polarization of people and remind me that there are good and bad guys on both sides. I liked the Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, Beck interludes.

I really enjoyed this play. The whole cast was great, especially Eisa and Cess. The music was fun, the costumes were great, and I liked the set design. I was surprised by the sight of so many empty seats.
