not good left at intermission
We enjoyed the show tremendously. Elegant, simple and gorgeous. The performances were clever and rich... and the design (all aspects of the show's design) were flawless. We feel privileged to have experienced it - particularly the cast. It was a stage held up by serious talent. Creatively it was an Off-Broadway show experienced on a On-Broadway scale. Fantastic.
Our only criticism is the show's length. It could have run 20-30 minutes less. Particularly with its minimalist approach - the conclusion could have come sooner.
Alan Cumming performed lazily. The stand in for the mother had an excrusiatingly shrill voice. Nelly Mckay sang beautifully, but Cindy Loper only appears briefly in the second act. With her incredibly expressive voice so suitable to Brecht, she should have been showcased more. This could have been done because Wallce Shawn butchered the play! He took a classic opera/ musical, rewrote the words using [...] more than once as a ryhming tool, had the singers singing [...]over and over, and even used [...]. Kurt Weil is rolling in his grave!
