James Joyce’s The Dead

By [email protected]

I would just like to warn my fellow students that they should not waste their money on the Pioneer Theatre Company’s production of “James Joyce’s The Dead.” It is, quite possibly, the single-worst piece of theatre that I have ever seen. Not only is the script boring, the singing unnecessary, and the acting flat at best, but the entirety of the production ruins the perfectly good short story upon which the piece is based. I realize that PTC presents a wonderful opportunity for students to see professional theatre on campus, but I guarantee you, the quality of the Theatre Department’s productions is ten times better than this (and, oddly enough, tends to be that way for most productions) and is accessible for significantly less money. Come see “Angels In America” at the Babcock Theatre. See “Endgame” at the Lab 115 Theatre. Do not waste your money on the theatrical catastrophe that is “The Dead.”
