Cabaret, by Kander and Ebb
Reality
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
0.0
It appears as if the general sentiments regarding this production are beginning to become increasingly hostile on all sides. I think we need to remember that just because one tanks a production does not, in and of itself, mean that he/she is a bitter has been. On the other hand, every production has some bright spot which should be acknowledged. That said, several "theatre people" and I went to see Cabaret and, unfortunately, all the criticisms regarding the technical aspects of the show are correct - it was a disaster. So much so that it is virtually impossible to critique individual performances because there were so many distractions with which the actors were competing. Our group did reach a consensus that Emma Goidel and Kevin Vickery stood out among the chaos. In light of the parade of technical terribles it is impossible to rate this show - I do think the actors should be commended for perservering in a production that clearly lacked direction, vision, originality, and basic precepts of production. I look forward to seeing them all in other productions in order to truly gauge their talent. If Atlanta "Professional" Theatre is to endure it must learn from this experience and up the ante in the future.
