It was playing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre.
Gord and I enjoy seeing plays and have seen many. This one was soooooo bad. The acting was really horrible. The actors were fumbling their lines and stepping on each other's lines. I couldn't believe it was a professional production.
How bad was it? People in front of of us started leaving in the first half hour ... they didn't even wait until the intermission! When the intermission finally came, we grabbed out coats and left. When we got outside, we saw that we weren't the only ones heading out and not going back.
The Toronto Star gave it one out of four stars!
November 18 update: I had contacted Mirvish and asked for my $$ back or a credit for a future show. I've never done that before ... yes, the show was THAT bad. I got a refund cheque today.
