The "Noises Off" actors shout a lot, making the words impossible to understand. I took my hearing aids out in order to muffle the volume. Bring ear protection if you are sensitive to loud noises.

Beware: When turning right after walking down the entrance hall there is a small ramp-style step in the floor, leading to a slightly higher floor level. This adjustment is not signed or lit with glowing strips. I tripped on this unexpected rise, and a second member of my party tripped and fell down. A lawsuit waiting to happen! The stairs leading down to the bar are dim as well and need glowing strips to guide the theatergoers.

Dreadful overacting and poor scene transition. I left at intermission. Theatre service was also very poor. It took them 20 minutes to get 20 people into the theatre. I stood in line for 25 minutes and when they had finally got me in, the show...continued

Description

The Shelton Theater presents Clifford Odets’ Golden Boy, co-directed by Jean and Matthew Shelton. It is a heartwrenching story of a young boxer torn between his musical gifts and the money he can make as a champion fighter. The play first appeared in the U.S, during the Great Depression and examines the price we pay when we choose materialistic needs over spiritual ones. Hernan Battiato, Nicole Slovenic, and Robert Nelson play the title roles.
