BUCKET LIST BUST

My husband and I flew from Georgia. I was so excited to see Richard Thomas and Mary Badham. Both had understudies. 😞My disappointment did not allow me to critique well. Atticus was good. Kids too adultlike. We could hear and see fine on row y.

HARD TO HEAR THE DIALOGUE

To Kill a Mockingbird was a very good play, but I had a hard time understanding a lot of the dialogue. I was sitting two thirds of the way back. I do have mild hearing loss in my left ear, but had an especially hard time understanding Scout....she spoke quite fast, and her voice had a shrillness to it. I especially missed a lot of the humorous lines.

TO KILL. MOCKINGBIRD

I was disappointed in this play. I found it patronizing. Atticus was NOT true to character at all. There was little warmth between him and the children and he would NOT a have lost his temper in the courtroom. It was his control that makes him such a hero in the novel. He would not have treated Calpurnia with contempt no matter what. There is much natural humor in the actual book and the wise cracks seemed out of place. I felt the dialogue was too explanatory and insinuated that the audience was too dumb to figure out what was going on. Although we’ll acted, the script proved disappointing.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

The Orlando performance was laced with too much humor. Both the book and the original film had little humor. Many injected lines, not from the book or original movie, were included to spur laughter. Apparently the producers of this 2023 stage play believed that today’s audience required humor in order to enjoy/appreciate this production. They were wrong. The over abundance of humor hurt the play and it’s original message- racism.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

I was quite disappointed with the performances of just about everyone, including Richard Thomas. He seemed tired and less-than enthusiastic about his role, in Tampa last Thurs. evening. I expected more from a veteran actor. The introduction of Arthur Radley (Boo) during the last 1/2 hour of the show left me wondering why did they wait so long? He was instrumental to the outcome. It seemed unnecessary, as the big show stopper moment. Secondly, it was too long. 2 hours, 45 min. The actress that played Scout seemed too old for the part - should have had a younger, more believable “child”. Overall, not worth $200.. wishing I had spent it elsewhere. Goodnight Jon Boy.

IT SEEMED LIKE A COMEDY

The tone of it just felt off. It didn’t feel like they were taking the story and the meaning seriously with all the jokes and laughing. Half the play was just jokes. I don’t know, it just didn’t feel right to portray the book as a comedy.

IS IT A COMEDY?

Play was good, but the audience thought it was a comedy and laughed and laughed at the most basic lines. What was so funny? - nothing, it was a serious play but the audience turned it into a comedy. Pretty pathetic.
