How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
When they produce silent plays Synetic is amazing. However, when there is dialogue their productions lose their magic, as in this play and in the Three Musketeers. Seems like most of their actors are chosen for their physicality but are not good as vocal actors. The lead, who played Dorian Gray, was awful and was also awful in the Three Musketeers (though that was more of a kids' show). The guy who played the portrait was fantastic, but that's because he had the only major nonspeaking role. Only one actor was good at speaking. Synetic, please get back to your roots. If you do produce plays with dialogue you need to recruit a different group of actors.
