I've always been a little shaky on old theater lore but I seem to remember that there used to be this phenomena called “overnights” where critics would weigh in on a production the morning after it opened.
Well, it’s not exactly an overnight because the show opened a couple of weeks ago, but the T-D has this review of “Endless Forms Most Wonderful” at the Science Museum in the paper today even though Ms. Haubenstock just saw the show yesterday. Ah, the power of a daily paper!
The buzz on the Internets about “Well” is pretty good after opening last night but I haven’t read a critical perspective yet. Perhaps tomorrow. And I’ll just relate a little bit about my own experience last night. I took in Richmond Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which basically had me laughing until I was crying. I have a new person to envy and that’s the husband of Stacie Reardon Hall. This is a production where everything is set to 11, including the sensuality part and, if Mrs. Hall brings even half of the lusty energy she shows on the stage home with her, well, Oh My, Mr. Hall must be a happy man.
