StageSceneLA on The Woman in Black at Theatre Unleashed

“Meredith is a scene-stealing standout in one delectable characterization after another, and Cantrell does commited work…”

“Katie Sikkema’s costumes are Victorian treats, with some nifty accessorizing to transform Meredith from character to character.”

“Both Gregory Crafts’ lighting and Graydon Schlichter’s sound design and have their potent moments, particularly Schlichter’s myriad effects and Crafts’ dark shadows as things get scarier in Act Two.”

“…a Halloween 2017 treat.”

A pretty solid review by StageSceneLA. I quibble with some of the finer points of his critique, but have to give Steven credit: if there’s one thing he is, it’s fair. Thank you for coming, Steven! It’s always a pleasure having you in our house, and I look forward to you joining us for A Very DIE HARD Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life: The Live Radio Play.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK

About The Woman in Black at Theatre Unleashed:

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt and based on the book by Susan Hill, The Woman in Black is a chilling classic ghost story in its purest form. A lawyer who has experienced a recent tragedy and believes his family is cursed hires a skeptical but enthusiastic actor to help him tell his tale and hopefully exorcise the fear that paralyzes him. With the actor’s help, he shares his story of that dark and stormy night when he first saw a horrifying specter, one that haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was killed. As they prepare their performance, they experience something unsettling as they learn more about what happens to those who have witnessed The Woman in Black.
