PRELUDE TO A KISS GOES BEYOND HOT LIPS
"Prelude" is compelling and original. Right from the time that the show started I fell in love with it. I felt like I was transported to a mysterious place. Custom Made has made this story about love and mystery, completely convincing. Is this play magical? Well yes! The Actors utterly convince the audience. We are seeing deep seated romance. I believe in this story -- and you will too.
There is the touching moment when a young man and an old man are drawn to each other with a kiss. I know what you are thinking. Why did that happen? Well, it a little long to figure it out -- but the old man has taken over the young man's wife. She is now in the old man's body. Yes, it's very mysterious.
This modern day fairy tale with a flair, brings moral and timeless wisdom that is almost believable. Hey, I'm a believer.
Take my word for it -- this lovely play is downright engrossing. And yes - I became enchanted. You'll laugh, cry and smile. The facial expressions say it all.
The actors are lavishly costumed. The show charms my socks up and down all evening. The exuberant charm will induce you to tell your friends to join in. The Custom Made Theater has done it again - "A Triumph!"
Here are the dynamite Actors: Nick Trengove, Allison Page, Richard Wenzel, William Leschber, Charles Lewis III, Jan Carty Marsh, Elena Ruggiero and Dave Sikula. They are dynamite!
