Suicide(s) in Vegas

 

Review


Two women meet in an online chat room and decide to die. One of them is famous and guilty about the lies that got her there, and the other is suffering over an unrequited love. As far as acting goes, these two women have great chemistry on stage. They each play multiple characters and the quick scene changes and dynamic personalities are engaging. The script is clever and the story is tight, and although the take-home message isn’t as profound as it could be, you find yourself invested in finding out what becomes of them in the end. —Saliha Chattoo

    Really funny. I liked their book that they used as a prop especially. Too much stage craft sometimes getting in the way of acting in alot of modern theatre.

    Maggie Whittum and Jessica Coyle really deliver in their respective boisterous and timid roles. You find such truth in their performances. Both in Ms. Whittum when they are on the edge of the building looking down, and Ms. Coyle whenever she is in her “toll booth,” The minimal set is functional and serves the story well. The real magic is in the chemistry of the two leads. Every want ti get inside the heads of two beautiful women? Now is your chance to find out what they are really thinking about but not saying! Go see this wonderful 55 minute dark comedy. You will not be disappointed! 🙂

    This would be an adorable production were it not for the subject matter. Everyone envies Jane as her fame skyrockets, and everyone pities Jane as her love drives off with another woman. It’s easy to understand pact made by the two women, it’s less easy to comprehend how/why the women stay together when they are so very different. Or are they?

    This play affects the audience emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Be ready for a one-hour ride into the world of dysfunctionality – and cognitive dissonance. Be ready to actually like it. You will become so wrapped up in these characters lives, that briefly, they become your own. Except you can still make choices, just like they can, will your choices be different ones? See this show. It is mental and magnificent!

    I saw this show in Denver, Colorado not too long ago. Great dialog, with several intertwining character stories that converge into a rather unexpected conclusion. Definitely worth seeing!
