M*A*S*H, by Tim Kelley
M*A*S*H should be on life support.
Thursday, February 4, 2010
-1.0
I have never left a show feeling the desire to ask for my money back, until this one. I would love to point out the good points of the show first: the set was awesome...that is all. The acting was tolerable at best, the direction was less so. The costumes would have been a highlight, but the fact that the women were wearing high-heel Nine West boots in 1950's Korea kinda ruined the rest of the period costuming. The plot was a little hard to follow; the play takes place over several years, however there was no attempt to break up the time periods.
Also, there was absolutly no character development. If the director's intent was to, somehow, get the audience to have some type of feelings for a young Korean boy going to America; he fell short by a mile.
Overall, I would not encourage anyone to spend money on this show.
