Review On Key Largo

Erin Conley

Registered Critic

This production is visually gorgeous, unfolding on an ornate and adaptable set (John Lee Beatty). The lighting (Peter Kaczorowski) and sound design (Alex Hawthorn) work together to set the mood as the hurricane threatens to overtake the hotel. Overall, this substance of this production never quite manages to live up to its high-quality packaging. Perhaps gangster stories are just better off on the big screen.

Erin developed a love for theater growing up in upstate New York, just a couple hours from Broadway. A resident of Los Angeles since 2011, she began reviewing theater in 2014 and founded On Stage & Screen. In addition, she is a Los Angeles critic for OnStage and a 2017 member of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle.
