Lucie Arnaz doing Mame would truly be, like Oprah says, an unforgettable full circle moment. Outside of Krysta Rodriguez, he's the worst thing in it.
The production is hit and miss, but Arden fails because he's taken the best thing about the show, the score, and not only allowed terrible orchestrations, but hired a bunch of terrible singers.
The only exception is the singing Wendla, Katie Boeck, who has a beautiful voice and acts the songs well. Austin MacKenzie is a very good actor, but he can't sing, and most of the other performers sound like American Idol rejects. MacKenzie is so bad, he made me appreciate how well Groff sang the role.
The deaf actors with maybe one exception are wonderful, simply wonderful.
The only dud is Ernst. The deaf Wendla and Moritz are particular standouts, and the boy playing Otto is so lovely and has so much life and light behind his eyes, you wish he had a larger role. My eye kept going to him and I kept wishing his character had more of a story. Camryn Mannheim is also quite wonderful.
Marlee Matlin and Russell Harvard are wasted. Liff's choreography was middling at best, and what Arden is trying to say about communication is kind of lost with not having all the kids have deaf counterparts, and having the adults have them. The adult characters should ONLY be translated for the deaf by subtitle projections, which would truly highlight the chasm of communication between adult and child.
Without that, Arden's concept falls flat. And again, he's really let the score down. That and casting his boyfriend in a role that he's A- way too old for and b- completely miscast as. And really, the less said about Rodriguez, the better. All that being said, I'm glad I saw it, and I basically had a house seat through tdf.
I guess they aren't doing so hot. No comparison to the fantastic original 'hit' production. This revival is failure on all parts! Not helped given in interviews he'd refer to Hanschen as a Nazi, which is a silly and lazy characterisation.
Mind you, I've always had an issue with the Ernst and Hanschen scene being played basically solely for laughs. I haven't actually seen the revival, not particularly sure I want to really. I've read about it - do they really have the girls feeling up Hanschen during My Junk?
But I would not say the girls have no sexual knowledge or experience.
Martha and Ilse have both been molested. Of course, that flies in the face of either character participating in that particular number, but I don't think Martha does. Also, to whomever it was earlier who said Mientus is well hung, you might be confusing him with Alex Wyse, who is enormous.
Mientus, OTOH, is hung like a raisin. They were both in very tight undies and unless Mientus is a grower, he's got very little to work with.Nov 08, · Glass Menagerie Discussion #2 Tennessee Williams creates a dark and intense atmosphere in the Glass Menagerie by the relationships that he establishes between the characters.
