I just don't think I appreciate the live art the way I'm supposed to, be it community, revival or Broadway (musical or non). I may have mentioned that earlier in the year when we went to see Spring Awakenings.
I know they have to play to the back of the house, but it all seems so over the top to me. Or maybe I'm just never in the right frame of mind when it comes to curtains going up.
There were no curtains in The Little Dog Laughed, and it was not a big theater.....though it seemed bigger, since half the seats were empty.
...and the little dog may have laughed, but I can't say this man chuckled or smiled too often - gay content, full-frontal male nudity or not. (sorry, no photography was allowed.)
The four-member cast was iffy at best. The lead actress was in Spring Awakenings, and was too over the top, even for her role. The other woman was milquetoast at best. The two males, played gay, but judging how badly they kissed, I'd venture to say they were straight playing gay.
Yeah, they had not trouble showing their wieners, but if you can't even act like you can kiss, you can't go much further than that in terms of conveying emotion.
It was fun to go out with 710 and friends for dinner and a play. It was fun running into other friends and gym-goers at the play too, but still........the play was iffy.
Maybe I'm a naysayer (no....no......it could be true), but I seemed to like it less than others - or than others were willing to say.
I stand by my "review".
