How was your experience?
It was a cold and extremely wet Sunday afternoon when we went to see this show. The theater is kind of tucked away on a little street near downtown. If your familiar with Lee's Liquor Lounge (which neither me nor my wife was), then your about two or so blocks away from it. It was a small intimate little theater with hardly a bad room in the house. We found ourselves getting pulled into the story and forgetting about the weather outside. The actors were lively and very suited for the roles they played. The transitions were smoothed over by a man playing stringed instrument. which was a nice effect. They used a lot of light and darkness between the scenes. You could almost feel yourself getting pulled into the time period. My only complaint was during one of the scenes they used a ladder leaning against one of the building's pillars to symbolize Homer working on a roof. It was across the theater and you really didn't have a great view of what was going on. I felt that if they had used the other side of the pillar towards the center of the room both sides could have viewed the actors better. Other than that we can't say enough good things about this play. There were interesting decorations during intermission that was also for sale. The staff was kind and friendly. The bathrooms were clean and organized. I hope to tell people at my church about this, I'm sure they would love it.
