It was interesting to see the play, which is not often produced, and overall the production was solid, however there was a glaringly obvious discrepancy between the skills of the cast members. While I applaud MST for attempting to give young acting students an outlet, their overall lack of experience was obvious, and detracted from the productions success and the overall experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- “The work shows off Coward’s technical mastery as a playwright, fluidly telling the story of a swath of British society living under Nazi terror and compellingly exploring, in admittedly a mild middle-class manner, the compromises of conscience that can occur as everyday citizens adapt to a new wartime order.” —Los Angeles Times
This production is recommended for audiences ages 13 and up.
About the Ticket Supplier: Main Street Theater
In 1975, Houston was a booming, oil-rich metropolis with a growing, sophisticated populace eager for exposure to a wide variety of cultural activities. But with only one resident theater, patrons were inevitably limited in the number and range of theatrical voices they had the opportunity to hear. Furthermore, few professional opportunities existed for the city’s growing community of theater actors, directors, writers and designers. Thus, Main Street Theater, the first of several new theater companies established during the 1970’s, was founded to meet two needs: to offer Houston theatergoers a more varied and challenging selection of plays and musicals and to provide a venue for training, employment and exposure for our city’s professional theater artists.
