I am now going to blog about a show I saw on closing night. Helpful! City Lit Theatre's "Jekyll and Hyde" was quite well done, full of thrills of the slow, creeping sort. True, absolute, straight-ahead reader's theatre, where you'll often have four people on stage reading from each other's letters. The cast was full of people with interesting Victorian English faces, and laconic ways of speaking, so that by the time they got to the truly intense finale, the audience was quite suckered in. And it's closed. Oh well.
