First act was great. All sorts of action; great story development. 2nd act dragged - mostly an outdated philosophy disertation.

Although the acting was very good, and the Theater should be commended for presenting a classic, the play now seems very dated. Further, we were surprised that there were no program notes (other than cast biographies) in the program--nothing on...continued

Very well done -- not just the acting, but the lighting, sound, etc. I also recommend reading the info on SparkNotes to get the most meaning from the play.

Description

Rhinoceros

By Eugene Ionesco

Directed by Alex Gelman  

“I am alone and they are all together.”  

Rhinoceroses are loose in the streets. Berenger does not care. While the citizenry fails to make heads (horns) or tail out of an increasingly chaotic situation, our hero begins to realize that everybody around him is gradually changing into pachyderms. Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
