Terrible. Left at intermission.
One good thing I can say is that the set was gorgeous. The props, backdrop, furniture, etc. were beautifully done and very thoughtfully arranged.
We would have left sooner but didn't want to be too rude. It was as if the translator/director tried to modernize the original, but there was such disconnect it just didn't come together. The acting was only just better than a high school play. I know they're probably college students, but if this is a career to which they aspire they need to appear more sincere in their acting. I really wanted to like it, but it was so whiny and disingenuous that any deeper message was completely obscured.
