Warning, I paid attention to this show so there may be spoilers.
A woman so evil the devil tries to save her soul so he doesn’t have to spend an eternity in Hell with her. Ha… funny concept. I went to see the preview last night, mostly because I had to. The director & producer, one charming, and talented, and funny, and beautiful Heather May is a good friend of mine and she is very understanding of my theatre ADD after her boyfriend had the misfortune to sit next to me once during a show. She doesn’t really expect much more from me than that I show up
Heather did Norm Foster’s “The Love List” last year which I remember not hating at all, I’d even go so far as to say that I liked it. I felt reasonably certain that this wouldn’t suck nearly as much as “Treasure Island” did (okay Treasure Island didn’t suck, but, well, you read the review… you read the review right? OMG, when you’re done this please check out http://missgo2girl.com/treasure-island-in-retrospect/). Anyway… I was right… it didn’t suck. It was actually awesome. Really awesome, and I’m not jut saying that ’cause my friend is the director & producer. I laughed so hard sometimes that my mum (who was so kind as to accompany me) was shushing me. I didn’t business with that though because I’ve heard before that my friends enjoy hearing my laughter from the audience… reassures them that I’m not sleeping.
Honestly this show had my attention from the onset… I won’t pretend that my leg didn’t start shaking at some point and that I wasn’t moving around my seat like a kindergartner on the gym floor during a Remembrance Day assembly… but unlike that kid, I was paying attention! I’ll tell you what I noticed… no I won’t. That was yesterday, I’ve already forgotten. No, I’m kidding! The cast was well chosen and well directed… each character bringing something fun and unique to the show. In particular I found Miss Marchbanks to be delightfully dumb, perhaps because I relate to her a bit? Biff looked like he jumped out of a 60′s diner and I wanted to eat him up… honestly. LOL. And Trish West who I know to be about the sweetest woman ever… Let’s just say, she brought it. And by it… I mean… I can’t even talk about it. I’m still a bit traumatized, please see this transition for yourself. And not to give away too much… but if I could please just have Tom Westlake in a tight tee hiding under my bed… I’m pretty sure my life would be complete. A shout out to Kerry Hishon who’s stage fighting stylings coordinated an ah-maazing bitch slap!
I don’t know what else to say… go see this. It’s funny and it opens tonight @ The ARTS Project.
