How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It is not often that I see a play about which I know virtually nothing in advance. I avoided reading reviews beforehand in order to enhance that experience. SPIN was a very good production - it featured an engaging (if at times predictable) story, an upbeat score and catchy score, inventive staging, and a talented cast. I wished that I could pick up a cast album in order to re-hear the songs. The only quibble I had was the casting of Trevor, who was obviously far more than 15, as the script stated - the character could easily have been written as 20 or 22 without changing the play's intent. I will be interested in seeing what the future holds for this play.
