Re: “Camino Real

I go to the theater often, and have what I believe relatively versatile tastes, and I found this play to be one of the worst that I have ever seen. I don't mind watching something shocking when there is a need for it in the play, but here the only need was to disturb and shock. I sat through the whole thing and have regretted that decision. Through out the play I was both bored and disturbed. The idea behind the play is banal and overdone, and I couldn't tell if the hysteria that prevailed on stage was good or bad acting since I don't really know what the actors were going for. I have no problem saying that what I got out of yhis play was nothing more than a waste of 105 minutes and a birthday present story that will last me a lifetime. If you want to see something that makes you think as well as disturb you, try to catch a production of "Killer Joe" or "Aunt Dan and Lemon" and leave this to the pseudo intellectual bull**** artists
