How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Wonderful setting for the show. The audience is on the stage which gives a great feel of being in the artist's studio. However, Mr Siriani does little to evoke the sense ot the artist who as stated in the script immigrated to this country as a Russian Jew at the age of 11. Mr. MacPherson seems defenseless in keeping up his end of the bargain. There is little chemistry between the two men because it really seems no one is listening. On half a dozen occasions lines are jumped because the show is machine-like. It is a shame. The setting for the show is wonderful. The attention to detail in the costumes is great. Mr. Siriani's shoes are doused in the red with which he paints. Too bad the details do not extend to actors' perfomances. The two actors seem to be good physical types for their roles. (Seriously, google "Mark Rothko" before or after the show.) I will dare to suggest they sit in chairs very close to each other, looking directly at each other, and just talk (and listen) to each other as a way of connecting better.
