I see what you mean - still, despite some shortcomings in this production, I found this the totally enjoyable evening. It was both intellectually interesting and certainly emotionally satisfying to see the early Brecht. One saw the beginnings of what would become his major themes and characters. Just the idea of turning the simple carpenter – was this occupation chosen deliberately? – into the soldier, a killing machine was a significant statement. The music was delightful, the choreography was interesting and the acting was really good. Thank you Classic Stage for being willing to take a yet imperfect piece and present it so that audiences can see from whence a playwright evolved.
