<<  -- 3 --  Kelly Ferjutz    TOO MANY WORDS?

-------------------------------

Awash in gold lights and gold furniture, all the characters wear (for the most part) clothing made of cloth of gold, or shades of peach or coral that nearly match. The effect is not just rich looking, it is also beautiful to behold. When Costanze appears in her black mourning garb it is a shock.

Gage Williams designed the multi-purpose set and costumes are by Ann Hoste. Lighting is by Michael Klaers and the gorgeous sound by Stan Kozak. It is 'surround sound' at it's very finest, bathing the audience with the utmost fidelity to the music at all times. The effect of the hissing gossip as it swirls around the theater over the heads of the audience is eerie.

Amadeus is certainly worth seeing; it hasn't been done locally for a good many years. It's just unfortunate that the playwright didn't heed the advice of his creature, the Emperor, but in this case, it would be 'too many words'!

Amadeus is certainly worth seeing; it hasn't been done locally for a good many years. It will play in rep with As You Like It (which opens on 1 October) through 22 October 2005. For tickets to either of these productions (or other information) visit the web-site: www.greatlakestheater.org or call +1 (216) 241 6000.
