"Blackwatch" - performed by the National Theater of Scotland, was a pleasure in political theatre. The setting - the Mission Armory - was both impressive and culturally appropriate for the piece. While some of the actors lagged toward the end (the...continued

Dont pass up an opportunity to see - powerful performance, innovative staging - fun venue. Not a bad seat in the house.

Excellent staging, clearly talented actors, lots of swearing and yelling which gets old pretty fast. Loved the new use of the Armory as a theatre venue given the other "acting" going on there. My particularly favorite part of the show was the...continued

Great space, acting and atmosphere. Felt the script a bit meandering.

I feel rather foolish to admit that when I bought the ticket, I didn't read much about the perormance and arrived thinking it would be a typical "tattoo" with a pipe band, Scottish dancing, and so forth. The first few moments disabused me of that...continued

Absolutely outstanding theatre experience. It is probably not for every audience -- obscenities, difficult lalnguage -- but for the intelligent adult, it is super.

Fantastic experience! This is the best production I have seen all year. We had spectacular seats in the front row thanks to Goldstar! My guest is handicapped and she didn't have to do any climbing of steps!
Due to the Scottish dialect some words...continued

It was engaging, but surprisingly not very emotionally engaging. It had a detached quality, but perhaps that's part of the point - a bunch of young blokes in a pub who've gone through watching their friends die in Iraq might be a bit detached.

The actors and the whole performance were phenomenal! The story was both emotionally resounding and powerful. The stagecraft was exceptional and creative. With the exception of the fight scene, the tempo kept us engrossed. Many complained about...continued

WOW! What a tour de force. Interesting perspective on war coming from the inside but watching it as an observer before, during and after deployment. Some incredible staging and a wonderful evening at the theater. So if you don't get every word...continued

A well choreographed, but rather bombastic production. Think they could have used the "F" and "C" words more?

It was an interesting venue and the way the seats were set up there weren't any bad seats in the house. As for the show itself, it was just ok. You do have to play close attention because of the accents. I liked what they were trying to tell us...continued

The show was interesting if unnecessarily long. While it was a musical, don't expect to come away humming anything. The location of the Armory Drill court while novel was not a great experience. First there is no coat check (as a rider that leaves...continued
