Theatre’s performance of film lacks clarity

There are not enough words for what I have to say about this play. What I can say though is that I found it to be highly entertaining.

Getting to play pretend has always been a fun experience, even if it was just playing cops and robbers as a kid. Now, I get to do it as a hobby and hopefully professionally in my near future.

An electrifying thriller that delivers

Adapted from Gillian Flynn’s best-selling suspense novel, Gone Girl is a film sealed with dramatic intensity and highly intellectual storytelling. Its manner of plot development is highly intricate and always has a sense of morbidity lying underneath. Every plot twist is so well crafted that it is never seen coming. That is, of course, unless you’ve read the novel. Gillian ... Read More »
