PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Straight jackets, serial killers, and everything needed in an asylum


When a writer gets an interview with a notorious serial killer, he believes he has snared the coup of his career. But when he arrives at the asylum, he finds nothing can be trusted, not even in his own eyes. Why is there a skeleton in the doctor's office? What is the nurse so afraid of?

And most importantly, how does one get out?

They got me.

I have not reviewed a show for Onstage for a while. The quality has been a bit of a roller coaster. I did not see the 2nd version of Urinetown and I missed Wild Party. I wish I had skipped Harvey Milk, but that is another story.

I did not plan to see Mindgame, but a friend wanted to go and paid for the tickets. Can't say no to that! Turns out that Mindgame is a lot of fun. Great cast, especially Darrell! Really good set/good production values. A few really minor glitches the performance I saw, but in a complicated show like Mindgame, it is forgivable.

Just about the time you think you have the plot figured out at intermission, Act II sends you down several different paths. Since this is a mystery, I don't want to spoil it.

Act I appears to start off a little slow, but by intermission the actors are almost exploding. Climax, duh! You also need to pay attention, because what you think you see may not be true.

Go see for yourself. I hope they can work out the quality issues and stay more consistant on the higher level that I have seen in the past. This show is a step in the right direction. Go see Mindgame.
