We went to the Huntington Theater series end-of-season performance of "Rapture, Blister, Burn" last night. The show itself was good and the performances were noteworthy.
Finally, however, all pretense was dropped. BU has extended its classroom to the theater. For several years, I have left the shows offered by this Company feeling that I had been more lectured to than entertained. Good theater generally offers a message, but in good theater the audience comes on its own to an appreciation of that message. The Huntington has consistently presented "plays" in which the message is the show itself.
This last performance centered on an actual class discussion of the history of feminism - complete with syllabus. It was an interesting discussion, presented in an entertaining manner - but it was not good theater.
