Northwest Children’s Theater
October 22, 2005; closes October 30, 2005
Hot goth-rock sound by Rodolfo Ortega; sexy bodice-ripping costumes by DeeDee Remington; and general charge of electricity gave this monster an almost Buffy-esque sense of tongue-in-chic thriller. Performances suffered a little gangrene, but at heart what was missing was a pacemaker. Slight-of-hand staging could’ve covered laborious scene changes. Wicked lightning.
