It set up the mood and time period perfectly because those are the exact places where the play was going on. The lighting in the theatre was a dull lit light on the stage. The lighting never really changed any during the play. They costumes in the play were good. The costumes for the civil war people were remarkable.
None the less, the play and actors were very good and I loved how the director made use of the space. The space was really small and close but I loved the usage of the four corners as entrances and exists for the characters. The usage of the space allowed me to feel as if I was in the room with the characters as opposed to a larger theatre. For me, I found the acting to me more realistic than the other plays we had been to; possibly because the actors were more professional. The actors were very vivid and life like meaning that I felt as if they were the characters that they played compared to Houdini were I felt that I was a bit out of the experience.
Dikes Do Drag Show One Saturday night in November, I went to Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis to see a cabaret show called Dikes Do Drag. The show, in its 12th year of 2-3 shows a year, was a combination of music, modern dance, film, and visual art, with a flair for old school drama. Essentially a skit show, it wasn’t perfect, but the imperfections are what made it so funny and enjoyable. There were newcomers (first timers) as well as cameos by Dikes Do Drag (DDD) veterans – eighteen performers in all. The audience (a full house with less than 100 seats) became a part of the event, invited in to an intimate circle through the warm camaraderie of the actors.

The director and the designers were able to collaborate well and produce a play that was very intriguing and fun to watch. The design for the costumes were very interesting but the set and lighting designers especially did a great job, with the way they were able to convey the messages of the play. The group of designers that worked together to make this play a reality were very careful with the way they designed their portion of products. I like how the designs supported the script very well. The play looked very organized and well planned out with way things were designed.
It had started slowly, as they first made the Jew’s wear badges stating they were Jewish, and either a boy or girl. Rosette was young at the time, and not happy with this because her bade was not written correctly and said she was a Jewish boy. Discrimination had already began, one day as Rosete was walking home with her friend; boys
Throughout the play, Nick and Honey appear as the younger version of George and Martha, only more naive. At first, they seem to be the perfect couple. In the play, Nick is described as an ambitious good looking man and Honey as a young slim hipped woman. The older couple feels threatened by them. George and Martha play a series of games in order to measure themselves against one another; not only against each couple, but also individually.
Moscovitch's father is Jewish, of Romanian and Ukrainian background, while her mother is from a Christian background (of English and Irish ancestry).  Moscovitch was "raised as an atheist", and has said that there is "implicitly Jewish sensibility" to her plays.  At age eighteen, Moscovitch travelled to the Golan Heights and spent four months living in a Kibbutz. She enrolled in the National Theatre School in the acting stream. One of her student works, Cigarettes and Tricia Truman, won enough notice to be workshopped at Ottawa's Great Canadian Theatre Company.
Salzman is a commercial cupid, a figure out of Jewish folklore, and his Yiddishized English and his descriptions of his candidates are hilarious tours de force. The comedy, however, is double-edged, for the scholarly and innocent student is, in his walk along Riverside Drive with Lily Hirschorn, made suddenly aware of his incapacity for love. I am not, he says gravely, a talented religious person. . .
