How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Frankly, no one wants to say anything bad about the iconic Olympia Dukakis but her role is quite limited and she's really not that good (she plays the "Chorus," not Clytemnestra, a much juicier role, camped up to the hilt by Caroline Lagerfelt). Rene Augesen strikes one note - hysteria - throughout her entire screaming performance as Elektra. Costumes were all over the place and staging was more annoying than effective.
