Theatre is Easy

"Vega’s performance is a tour de force. As the only speaking character, Vega embodies Anne, her adopted parents, and all minor characters...Vega seamlessly switches from each role, making it clear who she is speaking as and who she is speaking with...Vega’s portrayal of Anne is exactly what it should be—starry-eyed, enthusiastic, and filled with joy...There are a few times when projections of thoughts, feelings, and movements are superfluous and pull focus from the actual production."

Ambitious, Slow

See it if You love Anne of Green Gables and want to see a new take. Apparently this is 4 parts. It is a 1 woman show with 4 dancers

Don't see it if You need a full cast and don't enjoy one woman shows. Wasn't into it personally.

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing

See it if You like Anne of Green Gables and are open to one actor playing multiple parts. The show uses dance to tell the story as well.

Don't see it if You only like A traditional big show with multiple actors and flashy song and dance numbers. Also, if you don't care about AOGG.

Delightful, Great acting, Refreshing, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if You enjoy non-traditional staging - all parts are played by one actor, with four dancers accompanying. Unusual, enjoyable and well-acted.

Don't see it if You are expecting a traditional show and don't like plays with music, dance and video elements.

Absorbing, Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if You are a Anne fan and want to see the story told in a new, interesting way. You enjoy shows where many characters are played by one person.

Don't see it if You are expecting a traditional, children's theater-type retelling. You are bringing very young children or can't climb stairs.

Also This theater was up three flights of stairs, and there's no elevator. ... Read more Read less

See it if you like eclectic works, drama. There is one actress who plays all the roles. She is excellent. The 4 dancers are also amazing.

Also My 9 year old enjoyed it too!! Small theatre so all seats are good.
