Houston Shakes' R&J...

... was truly, truly terrible. I saw the same company's Love's Labors Lost last weekend, and despite myriad problems, it had the saving grace of delivering the text clearly and theatrically so that a broad audience could understand and enjoy it. Not so with R&J. And you could tell these were (for the most part) good actors racing through a bad production, which made it all the more painful.

I'm prompted to offer kudos, again, to Blue Monkey for it's R&J. The Blue Monkey Juliet was marvelous. (Okay--I think we have a new band name, "Blue Monkey Juliet.")
