I was very happy I had gone. It is very different from the film, far less a horror story than one of man vs. evil. Richard Chamberlain lived up to his reputation as a fine actor. His part broke the fourth wall, and he addressed the audience throughout the play, as well as taking part in the action. The rest of the performances also ranged from very, very good to workmanlike. The set design was beautiful and spare, with each piece used for various purposes. Lighting, too, was very effective.There were more than a few moments when I felt a chill run down my back. This production in no way resembles the graphic and gory original film version, but through the use of sound and suspense, provides its own sense of horror. We were spared spewed pea soup and graphic violence, but the evil was palpable. It was conveyed through inventive vocalizations, sound, and very limited use of special effects.
