Re: “Soaring Success

I went to see this show and was less than impressed. There were definitely some bright spots, costumes, the set itself, and "some" of the performances. The two little boys were great. The older actors were great, but man, Mr. Akhavan's performance as the narrator seemed to be something he prepared that morning. It was horrendous to say the least.

Every single choice he made was so obvious and simple, he laughed when he was "supposed" to laugh, he yelled when it seemed he was angry, and he cried at will and with such regularity that you just expected him to, and after every single time he cried, 4 seconds later he was happy again. Such acting cliche's, such pathetic direction.

It's such a shame that such poor performances usually get the most applause. Most theatergoers are so ignorant in the first place that they always give standing ovations whenever the lead comes out for his bow, whether it was good or not they stand and go nuts. But the real truth is that Mr. Akhavan did nothing to keep us interested, every time he came onstage we had to sift in our seats and try to find a more comfortable position to listen to his new ranting...

I just can't continue to believe that people keep thinking that "big" productions equal good theatre. It's appalling really.
