Glengarry Becky

Please enjoy the kudos written about Round House Theatre's current production of Becky Shaw here

I would prefer not to waste people's time with a negative review, so I'll just say the acting was great and the set design was great (though it was engineered much the same way as in RHT's production of Pride and Prejudice a few seasons ago - rooms rotating carousel-like for change of scene). 

I acknowledge that, production-wise, there was much to admire here. I just didn't like it. I had the same response that I did to Glengarry Glen Ross. I couldn't relate to these people, and I didn't want to spend time with them. If I can't relate to a production, I want it to transport me. This didn't, and I just wanted it to end.

That's it. So I'll not waste anyone else's time either. I really hope next season is better.

Love, hosaa
