Maple and Vine just did not quite work. The 50's really were like that with pimento cheese and cocktail franks. That era also came with its its own demons. "Duck and Cover" was a common drill in school and many neighbors were digging bomb shelters in their backyards. 2014 finds many of those shelters now holding a good Cabernet.
The ghost-like dream sequences were annoying at the least. Each actor was developed to an extreme portrayal of their character.....often to the detriment of believability. Let's get real. It's 2014, not every male homosexual has a limp wrist and lisp......and a best girlfriend to do each others hair.
The venue is ideal. Every seat is a good seat. This time around, Maple and Vine needs to take a couple of more laps around the block in the editing department. It could work with a few revisions. It does have a story to tell, an important story. While things may seem better "back then" the era came with its own baggage....some Louis Vitton, and some black plastic trash bags.
