DIRTY WORK AT THE CROSSROADS OR TEMPTED TRIED AND TRUE Reviews
This would be a fun show to perform in. I mean, with such over the top caricatures to play, really there are limitless choices to make as an actor. And who doesn't like to get campy on stage? But I'm not sure a contemporary audience would get into this. The humour may have lost its punch since its debut over one hundred years ago. And I'm just not sure there is an interest in seeing melodrama anymore. It is a definitive melodrama though, so as a study piece, it could work. As a professional piece, I just can't see people buying tickets to see it. 2.5/5
This was the first highschool production I ever attended. It was back about 1970 or 71, and it was enormous fun. I've never forgotten some of the lines, and the silly, crazy entre'acte songs such as "I Saw Esau." It was great to see my older brother's classmates dressed up and acting the fool.As to whether it would still play over 100 yrs after it's debut, don't kid yourself. Of course. It did, and does, and will again, unless people have lost the ability to laugh instead of just smirk sarcastically.
