Halloween Dreams, by
Halloween Dreams made me smile.
Tuesday, October 7, 2008
4.5
Okay, I am not a pro reviewer, just your regular "joe six-pack" if you will and I was there on opening night for Halloween Dreams. I was in a pretty full room of audience members.

The first act did a great job of developing characters. I thought that grandma as a man a little weird at first, but it grew on me. He did a good job bringing the family together. The tenacious relationship between the mom (Autumn) and the oldest child (Norma) was very real. There was humor and seriousness and redemption in their relationship.

The second act was great. Autumn, obviously the brunt of family humor, came out in Frankenstein garb and stole the show. She had the entire audience in stitches. Shortly after that was the climax of the play (I will not reveal), but it was pretty good with real gun shots and some fight scenes.

It ended on a nice note where the Halloween Dream of Gram Doobie came to pass.

I don't know what else to say, except that I liked it. Plain and simple. There are few options for seasonal plays on Halloween and I think this was a good choice for Theater on Main. I recommend it and hope you will enjoy it too.

J.D. - I have seen it all!
