B-

Hoo-rah!

  • The actress playing Erica Morini was superb– that’s my kind of old lady!
  • Loved the bits about how to make/play/analyze violin. I’m a sucker for ‘how-to’
  • Those feelings were compounded by having a very talented young violinist performing periodically through the show (clever device)
  • Satisfying enough through-line and climax… I definitely puzzled over the ‘final question’ for some time.

Blech…

  • either needed to be shorter, or have an intermission
  • two actors and an okay script weren’t quite able to sustain interest for the full hour and forty minutes (felt claustrophobic at times)
  • stakes didn’t feel high enough
