We enjoyed the show and look forward to more like it. The performances were great.
My only comment would be that our seats were off to the left and most of the show was center stage. It's not a huge deal, but the chairs don't face center stage, so my head was turned to the side for much of the show. But that's more a comment on the venue than the show.
Quotes & Highlights
“Horton Foote is an American original…[a] longtime chronicler of comings and going in fictional Harrison, Texas. Sometimes maddening, this is…a beautifully wrought and very moving play.” —Variety
Starring Theatrical Outfit’s Artistic Director, Tom Key, The Young Man From Atlanta subtly yet powerfully explores a flawed 1950s-era Houston couple, the Kidders, who each wrestle not only with the death of their only son Bill—was it suicide or an accident?—but also with his life and true identity. How they differ in digesting the nature of Bill’s relationship with his roommate and friend from Atlanta, becomes their unspeakable division. Also starring Marianne Hammock as his wife Lily Dale; Jessica Phelps West directs.
