As of now, I’ve seen Dr. Horrible LIVE twice. My companion and three friends enjoyed opening night, and then we came with four other people at the end of Gam3rCon. It’s a testament to this show, itself an adaptation of an internet phenomenon, that it has so much to offer from multiple viewings.
My Constant Readers know me as a film critic, but I also dabble in local community theatre. This show has the do-it-yourself energy and sense of ensemble that community theatre fosters. It also has an immensely professional production staff. As I previously reported, this is a stage creation assembled from a web sensation. Designers David F. Weiner, Michael Lowe, Chris Rynne, Paul Peterson, Karen Li, and Jannifer Mah created a vivid world in the tiny 10th Avenue Theatre space out of walls, light, and shadow. Pianist/conductor Korrie Paliotto’s crisp direction belies the fun energy the band brings.
