 Good in spite of serious flaws May 25, 2013 By David Lurie (Elmhurst, NY) See All My Reviews "My main criticism of this production is the crummy costumes the principles wear: long coats. And the whole thing is much too dark This combination of factors made for a big dissapointment. Mostly because it makes characters like Wolfram, who is really a tender-hearted guy, especialy in the 3rd act, look like gangster and a thug. The sound isn't always the best either. Otherwise, this version is good. Not superb, but serviceable." Report Abuse
