If youíve seen any decent theatre locally in the last few years, youíve probably seen one or more of these ladies perform. What an amazing experience it was for me to see them all on one stage. As it is in Heaven chronicles some extraordinary events that rock the everyday lives of a community of 9 Shaker women. Itís suspenseful, hilarious, mystical, exciting, heart wrenching and poignant. In other words, it covers all of the bases. Fortunately, the actors handling the material do so with an incredible amount of skill and talent. I wish that I could pull one performance out to gush about, but the strength of the show and the ensemble is that each actor played their character with complexity and complete conviction. Itís so rare to come across such a well executed and strong production, I urge anyone who can to catch this show before it closes, to do it. Iím a local actor and find that I am extremely critical of most productions I see. I couldnít find a flaw in these performances, even if I tried to channel the cattiest and most bitter actor that ever lived. The Shaker songs are sung with such emotion and heart, and strength that, at times, the beauty of it was overwhelming. The set was sparse, yet elegant. The staging was ingenious and worked fluidly with the lighting design. I loved the use of color in the props and costumes. Itís seriously a great production. Go see it. Now.
