This is an extremely honest and brutal review, and thank god OC Weekly has the balls to actually critique theatre. If we coddle these smaller theater companies then their product will never improve, and reviewers will continue to give them flattering reviews to placate them and to help promote the arts where they are hurting. But this comes at the expense of the ART of theatre, because we coddle and coddle and the product turns out to be shit. I saw this show and thought it was terrible. I actually like the material and have seen a few productions of it throughout the south land. The actors and direction/choreography were dreadfully amateurish and everyone seemed to be outmatched by the material. The leads were screaming the whole time and it felt like they didn't bother or weren't capable of really fleshing out the characters. Bad acting all around. This company can do better.
