35863Re: [pdxbackstage] Quality of Life at ART
- Apr 7, 2014By chance, I was sitting right next to Jenni, and I didn't even notice her condition as described below, because I was just the same.
In the first half, "Quality of Life" as written struck me as a little schematic -- too neatly set up -- but I liked it a lot more after the intermission. Often with newer plays, I feel an imbalance between the writing and performance: good actors can make something seem better than it's written; less often, I see what I think could be a great play that was too big for the performers.
This one hits just right on both counts: the actors are fantastic while you're watching the show, and you're left with a lot of things to think about as you head home.
