Audience: Kevin Hopps
Anyone familiar with Oscar Wilde and/or The Picture of Dorian Gray should love this adaptation. The acting is intense and the performances overflow with passion. Particularly outstanding are Michael Kodi Farrow, who plays Dorian; Carl J. Johnson, who plays Basil/Waitress/Moon's Mother; and David Wilcox, who plays Henry/Chuck/Hag. They each leap from one emotion (if not to a completely different character) to the next with what seems like relative ease. And that is not to say that the other actors (Michael Sturgis, Raven Moran, and Stephen Simon) aren't also wonderful... because they are. There aren't that many performances left, so don't be left out in the Wilde (see what I did there?), go see it now.
