The production was compelling, both chilling and heartbreaking.
Of course Rick Foucheux was superb. So were the actors who played Blair, Rice and Powell. It was a joy to watch them, even as the events they portrayed were so terrible.
It ranks among the best theatrical experiences I can remember.
It is an excellent play. Don't read the following (scroll down if you want to read it) if you're going to see it.
I found the 'devil's advocate' speeches - one in particular - not at all convincing. I don't think that Hare really got into that frame of mind (it would be difficult), and the actors attempted to convey their sincerity by shouting their lines.
Be a fly on the wall of the Oval Office and see how the White House ticks. Join George Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Tony Blair, Condoleezza Rice, and Colin Powell for politics of theatrical proportions. Spiked with dark humor, Stuff Happens is thought-provoking drama that mixes a lot of facts with a little imagination to expose how and why we went to war in Iraq.
