We saw the current show at WH - " Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming". We had seen the first " Smoke on the Mountain" performance and it was one of the best I"ve ever seen. I laughed at that one until I cried. Sadly, this production came no where near that one in quality. We have been going to WH for a long time and seen many plays. I had always told people " I've never seen a bad show there". Well, I can't say that anymore. I'm sure the actors in this show are nice people, and they worked hard. But - the spark was not there. A couple of the actors had nice singing voices, but some were down right irritating! Frankly, the writing for this show was poor also. It was actually boring.The lines were just not funny like the first show. The actors did not play the instruments - they pantomimed.
Visits to Wohlfahrt Haus used to feel special. It didn't feel that way this time. Most of the audience raised their hand that this was their first time. I heard almost no laughter or reaction from them - which said it wasn't just us. Before, people were howling with laughter. Something is wrong at Wohlfahrt. Maybe it is personnel changes or something...but it is just not a good value anymore. The food was OK but not worth what you pay. We left feeling a little sad that after years of wonderful memories here, we probably would not be back unless we knew the actors who would be in the show. It seemed like a high school production that cost us a hundred bucks with tip.Edited: 3:02 pm, January 21, 2014
