How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This Is How It Goes is a very powerful, thought-provoking piece of theater. LaBute doesn't shy away from volatile issues and puts some very uncomfortable truths in front of the audience. On Tuesday night it prompted an audience member outburst that added unintended drama and discourse to the evening. It was a powerful and suspense-filled moment that blurred the distinction between drama and real life (some audience members initially thought this was part of the play). The sense of engagement from cast and audience members made for one memorable evening. The actors are superb and their handling of the disruption was further evidence of their talent and professionalism. This Is How It Goes is yet another demonstration of why Aurora Theatre is a treasured Bay Area resource. Don't miss This Is How It Goes.
