Theatre is Easy
February 23rd, 2017

"The story unfolds with unexpected twists and turns. The troupe of actors keeps the audience on the rim of their seats under the direction of James Rees...The masterfully written script and committed actors make Midcity Productions’ 'The Seafarer' noteworthy. A lingering issue might be the overly exaggerated exchanges, which might be off-putting for those expecting to observe a family affair unfold naturally, where characters wouldn't need to dramatize their speeches."
