Ho-lee

The Orestia is hands-down the worst production I’ve ever seen on Campus and only the third I’ve not returned from intermission for the second act of. It makes the Merchant of Venice travesty seem like Broadway. It was about on par with my high school’s overly ambitious Les Mis fiasco. The difference being an ambitious failure is forgivable for a high school. And Orestia wasn’t even ambitious. It was just bad acting and sloppy writing. At times it seemed like I was watching a Monty Python parody of Greek Theatre. An absolute train wreck.

    it’s only fair to tell the whole story…
    the good part of the play was that miranda was the secret star!

    Huh?

    Yeah, the play was pretty … comical … in that unintentionally comical way.

    Back when I was A & E ed John G, myself the then art director and his gf left at the intermission of Hamlet – with the director sitting right behind us. Kinda funny.

    Freaky. I totally didn’t notice.

    i kept wanting to lean over and whisper, “that’s not miranda, right?” because i knew your name wasn’t in the program but that wasn’t enough to convince me.

    In your defence, it’s only when you’re talking about subjects like Harper that your voice takes on quite that timber.
