In On It Recap

I got "In On It" last night. I saw the play In On It, written by Daniel MacIvor, directed by Mark White, and starring Philip Goodridge and Jason Card. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fast paced and kept me completely entertained for the hour or so of the play. It is brilliantly written with never a moment where you know what is going to happen and very well acted by Card and Goodridge. There was a good crowd for what was a pretty snowy and greasy night on the roads and, as always, I was impressed with the number of people who showed up for theatre at the Hall. And, as usual, I was impressed with the staging of the show. Minimal props are on stage (two chairs and a jacket) but the lighting and the sounds are a big part of the performance and had to be flawless, particularly in a scene where there is a game of catch and at the pivotal moments at the end. I won't give anything away. There is one more performance tonight and if you're thinking about going, you should.

It *was* great, wasn't it? I went Saturday night, and the place was nearly sold out (a testament to good marketing; not all shows are so lucky). I think your description sums it up perfectly.

I'll let the guys know that you liked the show. I'm sure they'll be happy to hear it. :)

Yes, please pass it onto them. I am pleased to hear that Saturday night's performance was as well attended as Friday's. The guys did wonderful work all the way around.
