The venue itself was really great. I had never been there before. The theatre was and "arena/in the round" stage. I think they did a great job with the staging/blocking of it so that it was visible to everyone around all four sides of the stage. The elevated seating was terrific, allowing visibility. The actual play, however, wasn't so great. Long, but not great. I think the actors were good, so I'm thinking I just did not enjoy the script that much.
Quotes & Highlights
“Amy Freed gives zaniness a good name … a silly-savvy lark … a provocative bowl of goofy … The delightfully snide Danny Scheie purrs, simpers, fumes and camps it up grandly.” -–_Washington Post _
“If you love broad comedy, there’s a lot of it in You, Nero. Amy Freed captures all of that weird excess and contradiction in her comedy _You, Nero … matched perfectly by Scheie’s giddy characterization.” -–"Washington Examiner _":http://washingtonexaminer.com/entertainment/theater/2011/12/fiddling-history/1990716
This show is recommended for audiences ages 18 and up due to the mature content.
