There were some really funny moments during the show, nice lite entertainment. I was expecting more dance but The dancers were used as transitions and to help set the mood. cute cute dancers!!! It is more performance art then dance concert. The references to video games and the use of retro gaming sounds was clever. It kind of put me in a zone when the actors acted like virtual humans describing their lives by what they own I saw a preview.... it will get tighter. it needs an ebb and flow and a surprise or two to make it better. Enjoyed the ukulele scene.
This summer, Live Action Set jumps back on the stage with a brand new creation. This time, the award-winning, genre-bending troupe is guided by one principle: no BS. Mask sans mask and an 8-bit soundtrack, Basic North successfully avoids the direction leading to a lackluster blend that is the middling mean. Poignant, poetic, and amusingly astounding, Live Action Set carves out new artistic avenues in the most intriguing show of the season.
Chapter 1- Without Wax directed by Dario Tangelson
