Like I Say

defunkt theatre/Theatre Vertigo
April 20, 2006; closes May 13, 2006

Oh, that more theatre would be such a tangle of imagination as this! Adored drifter script; everything puppet; unsurprisingly charming Vertifunkians who gave themselves over to such idiosyncratic sincerity. Less successful: Splendide’s difficult-to-stage languidness; initially mothy tempo; occasionally fuzzy focal points; disobliging design elements. Long; payoff comes in second act.

Great show. Theatre Vertigo is a lot of fun to watch on stage.

The Act II puppet show alone is worth the price of admission.
