Were you at the same show we were? As theater goes, this was fresh, unique, risk taking and compelling. Perhaps you missed the moment that out catfishes any case of people pretending to be someone else online. And kudos to a theater company for taking on a production that takes place in the world of cyberspace. We are highly recommending this to friends and family – it’s the most compelling theater we’ve seen in LA in years.

You must not get out much. Even my theater companion who generally loves everything couldn’t wait to flee the theater. This “based on real life” story certainly has the making of a very good show but Ms. Bates totally missed the mark and delivered a lackluster and uninvolving script strapping the cast and director with mediocre material. If it ain’t on the page, it ain’t on the stage. As far as shows set in cyberspace are concerned, there have been many in the past few years and they all did it better. THE NETHER at the Kirk Douglas last season is a prime example. If you really want to see theater that is as you say “fresh, unique, risk taking and compelling” you should check out FIREMEN at the Echo Theatre in Atwater Village. After experiencing what really great theater is about I’m sure you will reassess your opinion of TALHOTBLOND.
