I didn't really care for it
31 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1.) Is it marks or dollars? What's the currency in use in Hostenwall? Both? That's unsatisfactory and looks like an oversight.

2.) It would help if everyone pronounced "Ceasare" the same way.

I can see that the directory and writer took some care with the original... but... fleshing out the plot points were a mistake, in my opinion.

The original production seemed mad because things were explained so partially - it seemed disjointed. This production attempts to clean things up, which was a mistake.

A nice try, but artistically no triumph.
