Play: Confessions of 300 unmarried men

I watched Confessions of 300 unmarried men by Action Theater at Drama Centre last night and I thought it was alright. Not too bad but not too good either.

Basically it's about unmarried men. We have 3 actors who acted as well, everyone. Mothers, bachelors, girlfriends etc. But mainly, we see the confessions of three men in 20s, 30s and 40s. It is pretty funny in certain part like when they pretended to sing. And the naked men part. The scandalous dressing and dancing... That is hilarious.

There are loads of sexual jokes. All the birds, balls and stuff. MY BIRD CAN SING LOUDER THAN YOUR BIRD. Yes. Something like that.

On the flip side, I think it could have been much better. The play isn't properly glued together and it feels strange to jump from one scene to another. I know that the singing and stuff is supposed to be humor but somehow I feel that it just don't have much of a link to the rest of the play. The tech is great though. They/he/she placed the props and stuff without me noticing at all. Rather unlike Turning Othello. Then again, those are students.

The best thing about this play? I didn't need to pay a single cent. Yup. VIP seat. First row somemore. And I'm supposed to pay $20 to watch it this coming Saturday afternoon so I'm totally happy about it. *grin* I supposed I have to thank my sister and most so, her friend for providing those VIP seats. Thank you!
