How was your experience?
The Raven is a nice little theater with no bad seats. The people working there ere very nice and helpful. The location is good, although very far from my home. Plenty of good places to eat in the area. While Bang the Drum Slowly is a good story, full of sentimental moments, the cast was a little weak. The main character was loud and articulate, but lacked connection with the audience. The coach, "Dutch" did a fine job of portraying a baseball pro. He warmed the room. The play did make me tear up a little, which is what it should do. This didn't happen until the song from which the title is taken was played. Overall, I'm glad I went to see it.
