When I first heard of this play, I had absolutely no idea what it was about. All I knew was that it was a funny murder mystery. It intrigued me because seriously, how can you make a murder mystery funny at the same time? I knew this was going to be a challenge but I also knew that if any company can do it, it would be Repertory Philippines.
The set design was very impressive. Seriously. It made the audience ooh and aahh. The blocking was fluid and I loved how they utilized every aspect of it. They were able to draw in the crowd and make you believe that you were inside a huge mansion with all of the characters.
The play started out with an opening that makes a huge impact and makes you ask yourself, "Is this part of the play or did I just miss something?" With that question, you are hooked.
The cast were all divine. The costumes were splendid and I loved that all the actors were at ease in what they were wearing. I have encountered plays where the actors were obviously ill at ease in what they had on and its so painful to watch. This cast however was just what theater was all about.
