'Altared' my mind...|

I saw the show last weekend.. it was great!|
I'll say this.. I think the talent far exceeded the quality of the production itself. Without that particular cast - I don't think I would've enjoyed it as much. The intimate venue, though, really worked here.
Josh Rhett Noble rocked it. He is so NATURAL in the role of Matthew. He's by far the only one who didn't appear to be 'acting'. He truly reacted to his scene partners and never once appeared to anticipate the next line. He took the wheel and thanks to him, the show never left the road. Nice voice too - when he serenaded a girl in the audience - he really showed his vocal talents. Loved it.
Kyle K. Haak was a hoot and a half. I think he nailed it.. He made it easy to laugh out loud.
Ronve' O'Daniel was enjoyable. He really played well with the audience..
Ricardo Aponte was spot on. He was hard to understand at times but I think that added to his character..
Andy Meeks sold it. Great facial expressions.. Good dancing.. Perfect grasp of his character.
Matthew McClure probably doesn't get the credit he deserves as the 'voice of God'.. I had to do some research to figure out who lended his voice for the role. Job well done. Smooth.. Authoritative.. clear.. He can say my name anytime.
It's a show worth seeing - I promise.
I'm glad I had the chance.
