Interview with actors Michael Manuel (Iago) and Tania Verafield (Emilia) about their new production at A Noise Within Shakespeare’s Othello. Feb 10 – April 28, 2019

The Bard’s most intimate of family tragedies about the terrible force of love and the breakdown of a man who has everything—power, position, and passion—only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal, and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay for choosing wrong. Taken from the website.

The year is 1933.  Our story begins with a talented but as yet untrusted film director who is rapidly preparing to set sail with a hired crew.  Why is he going?  To shoot a film of course.  Where is he going?  He’s not telling.  Without a care for the irritations and suspicions that this secrecy arouses, he finds himself a down-on-her-luck actress willing to accompany him on his mad voyage to film the greatest beast he can find halfway around the world.  His attempts at encountering the creature are successful when halfway around the world they discover (SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER BEWARE THE SPOILER) the legendary monstrosity himself, King Kong.

Even though Come From Away is set against the tragic backdrop of 9/11, it focuses more on the tension, feelings, and emotions of the time — as opposed to a more strait-laced recap of the period. The characters we see stranded in Canada remind us of the pain felt by all Americans at home and abroad alike. Yet even in tragedy, the characters were about to find a silver lining.

Crippled by A Fundamental Lack of Understanding of the Material
No tension or threat of violence.
Embarrassing fight choreography.
Costuming is inappropriately clean for the setting.
Characters miscast, especially Billy and Bobby.
Unmotivated, static blocking, with little business for or by the players.
Emotional range of the actors never pass sitcom levels.
Pacing lacks the music written into the language.
Set, lighting, sound were all acceptable.
