Last night, we went to see the Sight Unseen Theater Group's first play of the 2006 season Quarterlife at the Pico Playhouse. I found out about it in the regular emails I receive from Goldstar Events that let me know about and offer discounts for all kinds of events occurring in LA.
Querterlife features 4 20-something actors Em Dreiling, Clark Freeman, Tamlin Hall, and Bitsie Tulloch. It takes place in a cabin where one couple and their friend reconnect with a neighbor that they knew from their teenage years. You never know what you're going to get when you go to see these small productions. We've seen some pretty awful shows in the past, but Quarterlife was pretty good. The acting was better than the actual story in my opinion. I think each of the actors is talented enough to be successful in Hollywood. I thought Bitsie was the best, as she did many subtle things with her voice, eyes, hands, and body to make her character seem real. I also enjoyed the quirkiness that Tamlin put into his character, which added a sense of humor to the play. The only problem I had with the play was that it didn't feel like it really went anywhere in the 2nd half and towards the end, I felt like the conversations between Bitsie and her boyfriend Clark were too long and boring.
Maybe in 8 years this cast and crew should reunite and make OneThirdLife.
