Review for Centerstage in Lake Forest, Lake Forest, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Twelve Angry Men. The title didn't draw me to the theatre. I was pleasantly surprised by the creative staging CenterStage adopted to tell the story of a jury in a murder case. The theatre company smartly created a "black box" surrounding the central action of the jury room. As an audience member, I felt I was part of the jury myself, and able to see facial expression and nuance more clearly. It was a brilliant choice outside the "box" of their typical presentation. I was also impressed by the caliber of the acting and the commitment to excellence by the production team.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been attending plays and musicals at CenterStage for many years. They bring a lot of entertainment to our community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue, as they have been, to bring in outside talent. Promote the talent of the community as well.
