Theatre is Easy

"Presents an explosive mixture of eroticism and danger, but not in a cheesy, action-film-like way...'Rusalka' is at its best when the dialogue yields to the dynamic, dance-like staging...Occasionally the dialogue and vocals intertwine, transferring the audience into the consciousness of the characters. The effect is magical...'Rusalka' is an irresistable and intricate dance of seduction and threat, a play that grips you with its poetic beauty and morbid horror, yet is incredibly empowering."

Indulgent, Slow, Unfocused, Anachronistic, Actors inaudible

See it if You're up for good costumes holding up a too-long script made indecipherable by an inaudible cast. Plot and character points lost upstage.

Don't see it if You're expecting clear plot, actors projecting or some idea of Amsterdam, 1943 or the Resistance in WW II.

Also Who knew that a long night in 1943 Amsterdam could sound like Depressi... Read more Read less

Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if If you support off off Broadway and working actors

Don't see it if If you prefer air-conditioning and accoustics; setting a play in 1943 and mentioning Kristal night does not qualify for based on true events
