The show's props, staging, and direction flow ever so smoothly under the tutelage of David Esbjornson. Turner's "prop star" (Nicholas Yenson) is absolutely “spot-on.” Such a nerd. Those glasses. He reminds you of every high school brain you ever sat beside in chemistry class. He walks so fast across that stage, he is like a candidate trying to exit the platform after another gaffe. Shrub.
The show's been playing for more than a month (August 23), and it's still filling up every night. I probably was the last person to visit the "new" Arena Stage, and what a treat. Not just the production but Arena, too! Spot on. Hey! Anybody ever thought of an Arena Madness?
Duration: 75 minutes (no intermission)
