Theatre ... isn't always great!

And by that I mean the shows one goes to see, they can't always be 5* winners, now can they? Tonight I saw a show that had a cast of 7 and out of that there was only ONE who was good. And she was really good. The biggest problem, I feel, is that this show was full of actors who had NO CLUE who their characters were, what their characters were saying ... etc ... and it made a story with a very "intellectual setting" (college professors in the 1940's ...) VERY BORING! But I digress ... the gal who was good was really great ... physicality, knowing who she was all the time (and with every character as she played multiple) ... she was fun to watch ... and engaging. The rest ... well, like I said, it can't always be a 5* performance.
