Use the comments to discuss your reaction to the production. Possible starting points:
What effects did the the all-male cast have?
What are the effects of having the Duke be so tentative, so bumbling? (This is not a standard reading of him).
What of Isabella, including the ending?
Angelo was almost laconic (also, unfortunately, too soft-spoken, as was Isabella at times). What seemed to be suggested by his tone and pacing?
What stage business (actions/interactions) surprised you, or were particularly effective or not?
What effects did the long, spare stage have? The music? The dancing?Posted by tgus at November 3, 2005 8:10 AM | TrackBack
