Of Eyebrows and Accents
George Spelvin’s review of The Foreigner from the Buzz
December 1995—THERE IS NOTHING LIKE GOOD AMATEUR theatre. It’s inexpensive and accessible, and what the players lack in technique they make up in enthusiasm- an enthusiasm that permeated ACT’s new production of Larry Shue’s The Foreigner.
From bad accents to major eyebrow acting, the cast and crew brought a lot of joy to their production- a joy that, despite a slow pace and an awful first twenty minutes, made for an entertaining evening.
