Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Intense, Riveting

See it if You want a modern interpretation of a classic play. You want more nuanced & emotional depth from classic characters.

Don't see it if You prefer a more traditional approach to the classics.

Confusing, Inaudible, Original, Disappointing, Edgy

See it if you have the patience to strain to understand the words & you want to see an original spin on a classic. Young actors & director trying hard

Don't see it if you don't like adaptations of classics or you're expecting polished performances or high production values.

Ambitious, Slow, Inaudible actors, Original casting, Flat

See it if You'd like to see Lucas's take on Strindberg, support live theatre & support young actors as they develop their technique in a small venue.

Don't see it if Hearing dialogue is a concern; even in the 4th row of a tiny studio, actors were rendered invisible by poor vocal projection/presence. Read more

Intense, Powerful, Explosive, Visceral, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy a twist on a classic that is not done just to be different. I found it gripping, especially within the confines of a small stage.

Don't see it if You're above the Off-off-off scene, and if you want your classics done classically.

Strained, Heavy-handed, Stulifying, Disappointing, Zero nuance

See it if you enjoy l-o-n-g, LOUD, contentious arguing, shouting actors delivering their lines as if they're in a typhoon.

Don't see it if you have seen classic Strindberg with truly professional actors & competent direction (or you will run for the door like I did)

Confusing, Dated, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you'll enjoy an amateur production. (This wasn't as good as many college productions.) You want to see an adaptation of a famous play.

Don't see it if you don't want to watch a bad adaptation truncated so much it makes no sense. You think a director should reign in overacting.

Dated, Disappointing, Slow, Old class conflict play seeks and fails to find contemporary relevance.

See it if You want to subject yourself to Strindberg's gloomy and dated railing against society's ills.

Don't see it if You'd be bored by a painfully obvious illustration of the old saying "Hell is paved with good intentions".

Stage Buddy
September 26th, 2016

"The production was straightforward, delivering Strindberg’s story skillfully, but without attempting to twist any of the play’s more outdated themes into a modern perspective, leaving Strindberg's misogyny to go unquestioned. As Miss Julie, Dodge shines at the play’s center...The performances at times relied too heavily on shouting to convey the play’s heavy emotion...Aris’ directorial debut delivers an enjoyable, if straightforward, adaptation of Strindberg’s classic play."
