Re: “Review: Village Playhouse tells a tale from the cell phone crypt

Wow, Fred, you have a LOT of time on your hands. I tip my cap to you, as I've never before seen anyone write so much and still say so little. I guess your mother never taught you that simply writing a bunch of "big boy words" does not make you intelligent. In fact, it exposes you for the fraud that you are - talking in circles to cover up for the fact that you really have nothing, of value, to say. In one sentence, you tell me that I'm entitled to my opinion then, in nearly every other sentence, you attempt to make a personal attack on me for having one which, I might add, only makes you sound like to complete dbag.

Here are two free pieces of advice, which I'm certain will serve you well in life:
1) When you write something, have a point. Simple.
2) Try and make your point quickly and concisely. Nobody likes to listen to (or read about) some dolt's inane, rambling thoughts.

Somehow you infer that "the vehicle turned [me] off" and you asked me "why not just admit that this play wasn't what [I} expected?" I find it interesting that you, someone who knows nothing about me, would be so cavalier as to assume that you know my opinion better than I do. To clarify MY opinion (I'll dumb it down for you, even though I think I was pretty clear to anyone else reading the post) - my opinion had nothing to do with this play being, or not being "for me". The story was boring and the actors couldn't revive it. Plain and simple. I could talk in circles like you, but I think that sums it up. I'm not an acting coach, so it's really not my place to make suggestions as to what the actors could've done better or differently. And, frankly, I've got better things to do with my time. Funny enough, that single sentence says more than your entire post, as well as whatever asinine response to post to this.

And your comment about me wanting to "impress [my] peers with [my] astute grasp of the theatre arts" just doesn't make any sense at all. Why would my peers care about what I write on some message board? My peers have better things to do than to follow my online comments about a play that I saw in Mt. Pleasant, SC. I'm not sure what planet you're living on but, here on Earth, most people have better things to do with their time than to critique one another's web reviews. Only someone like you would even think that anyone else cares about your (or my) opinion on a site like this.

Anyway, I've already wasted enough time on you. This site is for reviews of a play. I've stated my opinion (snooze), and you've spent your time making it personal. I feel sorry for you, but I can't fix you. Do yourself a favor, and everyone else reading these posts, and please consider saying something constructive about the play. Maybe YOUR opinion will sway a few people to give it a look. Whatever it may be, I can assure you that I won't try to tell you what your opinion should be. Good luck with being less of a tool in your future endeavors:)

Re: “Review: Village Playhouse tells a tale from the cell phone crypt

I viewed this play last weekend with my wife, both of us first-timers to the Village Playhouse. I have to admit, I'm usually a very loyal patron to the local arts, but this production was very disappointing. Not only was the story boring, but acting was mostly sub-par, with the exception of the woman who played Gordon's mother.

More than anything, the story killed this production before it ever got off the ground - nothing exciting about it and absolutely not worth the price of admission. While I thought the performers mostly matched the story (both boring), I have to be fair and say that I'm not sure that even the best of performers could've made this story any less drab. At the risk of hurting feelings, I'll stop short of saying further negative things about the performers.

I'm sad to say that my wife and I will likely not be going back to the Village Playhouse any time soon, if ever again.

Unless you're without anything else to do, I would strongly recommend that you pass on this production - there are hundreds of other things, far more interesting, that you can do locally for the same cost.
