How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I've seen this play several times in the past, so, for better or worse, I had several other peformances to reference. I found some aspects of the current production -- for example, Rick Foucheux's spot-on performance as the father -- very effective. However, all other cast members, to a greater or lesser degree, came across as "acting." The stage set was also off-putting. The space is just too large to provide a venue for a cozy family gathering, the furniture was spread out at considerable distances, etc. Having the script of the opening scene as the "flooring" was just distracting.
