Re: “Camino Real

What really bothered me about this production is that it wasn't really that good. It was like a bad horror film. Your compelled to watch even if the direction, acting and special effects aren't that good. I wish someone could tell me what the play was about. In spite of all the gratuitous fake blood and gore and simulated sadistic sex scenes I was actually bored with the proceedings. The actors shouted all of their lines without any emotion and the musical numbers did not seem to fit in with action of the play. And why they were even there I couldn't tell you. I didn't see any beauty or poetry. I just didn't get the point and for that I blame the director. He was so busy trying to shock us staid mid-westerners that he forgot the point he was trying to get across.
