How was your experience?
Very strong production from San Diego Rep. I saw this on Broadway, and this production more than comes through in one of the strongest shows I have seen here. The leads here are wonderful and have a clear understanding of the material, and get the laughs (where there are laughs) where they should, but the drama is very real and tense, strongly directed. The "in the round" staging is very good, effectively making the entire theatre equal, with no bad seat in the house. This is an adult-type show, so don;t bring anyone under the age of 16-18, unless you want a lot of questions about Bondage/porn. The material isn't explicit or there is no nudity, but the subject of a erotic novel being adapted into a play, with the playwright and his actress and an audition that begins to become a little too real, is one that should be enjoyed by consenting adults. I would label this a "Must See!"
