Ardiente Paciencia

El Grupo Milagro
9 de abril, 2006; termina 29 de abril, 2006
Presentado en español (con los supertítulos ingleses el jueves y domingos)

La mejor parte de esta obra cariñosa era cómo fácilmente su reparto elocuente hizo una persona común y verdadera del gran Pablo Neruda, mientras que nunca duda en su reverencia de sus poesía y políticas. Todavía, metáforas hermosas a un lado, yo quisiera caracteres más profundos e historia más detallada.

Best part about this warm, affectionate production was how easily its eloquent cast put the great Pablo Neruda on a simple, human scale while at the same time never wavering from reverence of his poetry, politics. Still, beautiful metaphors aside, I would’ve liked to go even deeper into character, plot.

Applause to you, sir, for the review in Spanish. Had to read the comments to find out what you said (not being bilingual myself), but a nice little nugget of style in keeping with the piece. Bravo!

Sweet, but Peanut is a sucker for a love story.

Essentially, plotless, stakeless, point...less?

Had that meandering, here-I-am-gathering-my-thoughts first draft feeling...unsure what story I'm really telling.

Once that story is figured out tho...combination of political & poetical could be exciting.

Lovely set.

I'm curious if some of the subtlety of the story is lost in translation (lingually or culturally) ... Any Spanish-speakers or Chileans who didn't read the subtitles wanna chime?
