A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
From what I've heard, there hasn't been a worse theatric production in DC in a long time. Tickets are going for extremely reduced rates on Godstar. Pity, I was actually looking forward to it.
i thought it rocked despite sound challenges- the audience tonight laughed and cried and basically totally loved it. plus have heard it's sold out plus has a waiting list regardless of the great rockstar reviews and whiny "i don't get it" ones. check it out if you can!
i've seen a lot of theatre in this town and those that say this is the worst production probably only hit the safer more digestible theatres. this is a stream of consciousness rambling series of events and dialogue to evoke feelings. it's not a linear story aimed at your intellect. there is beautiful singing, lighting, interesting use of sections of the space as a vignette, video projections and lots of shuffling around. it's slow, a bit contemplative, though not particularly deep writing. i enjoyed myself immensely. if you are looking for traditional theatre or looking for a history lesson, you should skip this.if you need to walk away with a solid thought, it's "we all built this city, and we all need to make sure we don't let it fall apart". but really, it's not about anything.btw, the lighting design was amazing and i can't even imagine the difficulties that space presented.
