Thespian Thoughts review of “Mercy Seat” at Inside the Ford Duly noted.
Welcome to Thespian Thoughts, for theater reviews. I attended the presentation of “Mercy Seat” which can currently be seen at [Inside] the Ford Theater in Hollywood, CA. The show’s realism provides truth and beauty. The subject matter of Mercy Seat is rather controversial, while surrounding the day after September 11. With excellent writing, clever story, and incredible acting, “Mercy Street” is a must see production.
The cast of “Mercy Seat” showcases two actors who capture the show. Their 90 minute back and forth conversation is nothing but enticing. The audience is able to relate to both characters and ride the emotional rollercoaster alongside. The acting goes hand in hand with the writing.
Writing is a key element with any production and “Mercy Seat” provides precision. The show does not feel like you are watching a scripted conversation, instead witnessing a real-life couple go through issues that take place on stage.
I highly suggest the attendance of “Mercy Street” and stand by my recommendation. Every component in the show fits and should not be missed.
“Mercy Seat” is playing at [Inside] the Ford Theater until April 24th. For More information, please visit: www.FordTheatres.org. I’m Erica Mer, with Actors Entertainment.
