'CasablancaBox' lifts the veil of the eponymous classic film to reveal the stories behind the legends. Audiences embark on a tangled journey, from 'Casablanca’s' sound stage at Warner Bros. Studios, to Nazi Germany, to London during the Blitz, to Ingrid Bergman’s living room, to Humphrey Bogart’s dressing room, to an Austrian extra’s real-life escape from a concentration camp, to Peter Lorre’s morphine-addled mind. Rife with glamour, war, censorship, sexism, racism, addiction, and the refugee crisis of 1940s Hollywood, 'CasablancaBox' sets out to explore and expose the often accidental and chaotic nature of great art through the lens of "America’s Favorite Movie."
See it if you are up for a light-hearted romp through the chaos behind this film, or don't know much about its history & want to learn.
Don't see it if you are a stickler for historical accuracy. This is imaginative & informative fiction loosely based on facts, but not beholden to them.
See it if The projection work is stellar and the acting leads were amazing. Great concepts.
Don't see it if It just doesn't merit a show. The story is trite and ultimately not a story worth telling onstage.
See it if The projections are magnificent and the casting if nice for the most part.
Don't see it if The plot is boring and hard to follow. It'd hard to care for anyone in the piece.
