A Spanish Play

Classic Stage

There were some great sentences ("If you can't say something nice then could you at least say it nicely?"), but the whole of the piece failed to draw me in- probably because I wasn't quite sure what was going on (though it must be noted that I am often amazing at not getting it.) Working on two sometimes three levels of reality (we're rehearsing a play/we're in a play/we're somewhere?/etc), disjointedness abounded and I didn't feel like I was ever fully allowed to emotionally invest in any of the stories. Still Dennis O'Hare plays a hilariously convincing drunk and I finally got to see the wonderful Zoe Caldwell in a play after apathetically missing her in Master Class ( In my defense, show glutton races were only invented a couple of years ago.)
