How was your experience?
I saw Invisible Man yesterday, commonly noted as one of the top 100 Novels in American history. I was apprehensiive at first and I thought the visual backgrounds of the event covering a 60 year period in time would be hard to do on a stage and are much better suited for film. The Book and play are consistent - until the end - (and its been 30+ years since i read the book so I might be wrong) - until after the Riot scene. The set background contains a large video screen which uses videos to set the tone and background. I thought the lead actor was great - he reminded me of a younger version of Andre Braugher. There are a series of monologues which serve as the "transference" of the key points to the audience , and some of them seem like a lecture on Race in America. All in all i'd give it a B, worth seeing, thought provoking. The bad part is the location, the Studio Theatre is a great facility, seats about 150 and every seat in the house is good, but its located in Logan Circle. The part of DC that's not that close to a metro station and limited on street parking.
