I went to see the stage adaptation of Joss Whedon’s, “Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” at the 10th Ave Theatre on July 29, 2011. I’m a big fan and really enjoyed this fan-based production.
It had been a while since I watched my copy so I think they might have added a scene or two so that the actor’s could change or get into position. The play was just as funny and entertaining as the original.
Good: Great acting, fun singing, and the way they used shadows and set pieces to replicate the special effects was great.
Bad: The gun exploding at the end and Penny getting hit was hard to see because I was in the back and it happened upstage.
See It/Pass: If you enjoyed it on the internet or on blu ray, you’ll like it just as much in person. I saw it with a group. Three of us had seen it while one of us hadn’t. The one who hadn’t already seen it was a little lost but enjoyed it. If you’re lucky enough to have this live show land anywhere near you, go and see it.
It's playing August 26-28 at Elmwood Park High School Auditorium in Illinois
