They may be small in number, but wow: are they ever responsive! So many audience members have e-mailed the producers or cast members after seeing the show – it’s definitely a play that provokes comment and deep thoughts. One of my co-workers, who saw the show yesterday, told me that he went home afterwards, did some research on Jean Rhys, and ordered her novel Wide Sargasso Sea!
And here are a couple more comments:
…congratulations on a great show. It sat with me for many hours after and still resonates now. The story is beautifully layered and interwoven and the complex narrative was executed very well by the cast.
… really truly impressed with the whole production, from a complex production standpoint to the outstanding acting from everyone. Not one weak link.
