Grab a ticket and the opportunity to watch Edward Albee’s “The Goat or, Who is Sylvia?” before it is gone at Theatre on the Edge. MAY 25 - JUNE 15, 2019
Theatre On The Edge, also known as TOTE is the only theatre where I experienced raw, real, true, fine acting and I can’t wait to go back for the next production. If you want to catch Edward Albee’s “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” they’ve extended the show through June 15, 2019 so grab a ticket to see it. It’s going to shock you, even if nothing ever does. But the time will fly by as you laugh, gasp, and cry a little at the honesty, the pain, and the reactions of this family to the news they have to endure.
Albee’s play is a bit dark and definitely edgy and yet for Theatre On The Edge in Edgewood it all seems to make sense. I saw it and loved it. I walked out of the production feeling like I had stepped out of a Broadway play. How had I not heard about this place sooner? These actors, every single one of them, were each sublime and supremely talented. The set was perfect and intricate and so very real. When the dishes fly, they’re real china and porcelain. The front row patrons are in the splash zone but it’s not yet at the point of needing protective eyewear. The attention to detail though, is unbelievable.
Aside from the incredible hyper-real set, the space itself is cozy and unique. A small theatre room with a stage and three levels of comfortable armchair seats. The concession stand and attendant were both neatly appointed. Plenty of room for wheelchairs and assistance needs. Get a sitter for this production though, unless you’ve got older teens.
