How was your experience?
This production has some serious writing issues — gaps in character plots.The second act focuses on an illness that is not developed in the first act. A daughter has an affair, gets pregnant with no follow through. The huge cast is constantly make running entrances into an elaborate, cluttered set in the 2nd act. The acting is impressive, considering the many characters, but the Italian dialects are embarrassingly distracting — some trying, but none succeeding. The humor helps but disappears in the 2nd act.
