Quote from: scenicdesign71 on Jul 04, 2017, 09:40 amSo I was equal parts curious and nervous about seeing the tour in Hartford, once again trapped behind a proscenium. Lo and behold, another pleasant surprise: I ended up crying just as much there as I had during any of my eventual 9 or 10 viewings at Circle in the Square. Nothing can dim my memories of the original cast; but Shindle and company were marvelous, and I even came around to non-grudging acceptance of the logistically necessary return to a proscenium format -- not a simple reversion to the Public design and staging, but tighter, leaner, and more carefully focused, which certainly helped. Performances, design and staging alike struck me as all the more impressive given the rather inhospitable setting: Mortensen Hall, at Hartford's Bushnell Center, seems to have been designed with the singleminded goal of forbidding any sense of intimacy between performer and audience.
