Re: “Theater review: Marie Antoinette fails to emotionally connect

I couldn't disagree more with this review. The script is smart, funny and accessible. Ms. Graci's immaculately choreographed transitions from scene to scene were a joy to watch. The performances were spectacular, especially Ms. Haring's tour-de-force turn as Marie Antoinette. Although he rightly praised the gorgeous, inventive costumes, the reviewer missed the finer points of the scenic design and completely ignored the stellar lighting and sound designs, both of which were among the best I've seen at Pure. Scenically, the design takes inspiration from Philippe Starck's Louis Ghost Chairs, crafting everything from tables to archery bows in clear acrylic. Like the script, it presents historical details in a modern aesthetic, while metaphorically nodding to the fact that Marie is without privacy and perpetually on display. The sound design also plays with the anachronistic aesthetic, setting the action against French covers of pop music that infuse the show with a sense of playfulness and rebellion. The lighting design continues the theme with clear acrylic footlights adorned with fleurs-de-lis, using them to ominous effect in a design that evokes time, mood and place effortlessly in the confines of a black box space that is extremely difficult to work in. This show is smart – really, really smart – and an absolute joy to watch.

Re: “Bigotry alive and well in the SCGOP

Most Republicans are not overtly racist, but - in my experience - virtually all overtly racist people are Republicans. Until they purge the hate from their party, it is going to drag them toward obsolescence.
