I directed this in 2011 and was quite pleased with the results, as were the audiences. It was produced on a small stage (only 17.5 by 14.5 ft.) and worked quite well. We had a blast created a 50's bachelor pad complete with leopard print sofa cushions and a kidney shaped coffee table. We had some challenges creating the bedroom aspect, but overcame the issue with a platform with a Japanese lacquer & "silk" screen door which we backlit for the desired effect.
The dialogue is wonderful, but the roles of both George and Charlie require actors who are on top of their memorization skills as their are a great number of lines with the same or similar cues which caused great confusion during the rehearsal process.
The lines are fun and witty. There are farcical elements which are a lot of fun to work with.
Costumers who love the 50's will have a blast working on the costumes of the female characters.
