Re: “Does Day of Murders measure up? That is the question

I think Curt Holman did not see the same play I did. "Meta-theatrical gimmick"? The cellphones were a refreshing way to deliver the lines. Such direction by Thierry de Peretti brings "new life to Shakespeare" (to quote your photo caption)for modern audiences, audiences giving this cast standing ovations. About the "leggy queen" and "pipsqueak" remarks: Kate Moran, an outstanding performer, indeed is youngish, and it doesn't phase the audience because she plays it older, a mark of good acting. And who says Hamlet must be the brooding Batman in appearance, muscular and macho? I don't recall Shakespeare specifying that a sensitive, intelligent, slender actor with a bounce in his walk could not play Hamlet. I wish theater critics in this city would stop trying to prove they can write snappy lines in nastily trashing works they could never write or produce. Let's see Curt Holman perform Hamlet. I bet Joey Boren can write a better theater review than Holman can act. How's that for a snappy line?

Re: “Theater: The Day of Murders in the History of Hamlet

Never begging to disagree with Curt Holman, I disagree with the "in the wrong hands" jab. "The Day of Murders in the History of Hamlet" is an excellent production: engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Superb actors interpet Koltes' lines with a flash of eyes, a step in retreat, folded arms; Nicholas Baby's music production is phenomenal. It's not in "wrong hands" when you see a standing ovation. I'm so glad 7 Stages exists to bring us a taste of fine world culture rather than the oh-so-witty, shallow and provincial stuff that too often crosses Atlanta's stages.
