Clever production. Interesting take in Film-Noir style. Cast of three characters worked well together. Acting was well done, especially the detective character. All three actors did a great job, especially working on such a small stage. Minimal scenery was perfect for the atmosphere. Detective character had a great voice and delivery. Piano man did the voice overs and several 'character' parts. The female lead was a good actor, but her voice tone could scrape paint off walls - very difficult to sit there and listen to her. Unfortunately, it caused us to leave after the first act.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A poignant exploration of the hard-boiled mystery genre ... brilliantly clever lyrics, a score that couldn't be more captivating or sophisticated, and a book with more twists than a Chandler simile." --New Yorker
- "Musically more sophisticated than City of Angels, Mr. Bohmler's torchy swiveling melodies echo the moody grandeur of the '40s film-noir soundtracks." --The New York Times
