How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I loved this show, my favorite so far of the LaBute plays I've seen. As usual, there's a male protagonist with morally/ethically suspect behavior. In this case, I found the protagonist's struggle even more interesting than usual, since I relate to his conflict as a writer wanting to use his real life stories in his writing, but in doing so, revealing personal information about people who have shared his life with him. He crosses the line in disturbing ways, and the women he hurts in the process are really engaging characters. It was also fun to have LaBute himself sitting in the audience directly behind me, taking notes on the performance.

Help others enjoy a great night out

The courtyard at the Geffen is a beautiful place to have a glass of wine before the show.
