All My Sons: Audience member talking and I like it!
Posted by: Zelgo 11:14 am EDT 06/11/19

I finally got around to see the powerfully acted All My Sons last weekend. After many decades of seeing this show, I still think the last scene needs a few more choice lines to make it flow more perfectly.

That said, as the final speeches were coming to a climax, a woman behind me, sobbing, muttered a few times under her breath "Oh my God! It's her son! It's her son!"

Normally, it her interruption would have bothered me. This time, however, the fact that she was so engrossed in the moment and identifying so emotionally with the characters proved the power that live theatre can have.

If fact, that'll likely be the moment I recall most when I think about the show.
