Introduction to Theatre Justin Doran Critique #2 Miranda Herbert October 31, 2007 Production: Below the Belt Lyndall Finley Wortham Theater October 5, 2007 Realities of the Corporate world On October 5, 2007, the play “Below the Belt” was performed at the Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre located in at the University of Houston. This production was written by Richard Dresser and directed by Carolyn Boone. Although this UH production was not a professional play, the overall production was well directed and carried out the playwright’s purpose. From what I saw Richard Dresser’s play was intended for the corporate workplace. It shows the love, sacrifice and hurt workers suffer. The director utilizes acting and set design to bring out the corporate world’s love, sacrifice and brutality with a touch of comedy. The director utilizes acting and set design to bring out the intentions of the director with a dead on hit. When I first walked through the double doors I immediately notice the newly remodeled lobby. It was a large open space that provided a warm feeling of comfort like it was your own home. The house has little to no decorations, which would help set the mood for the upcoming comedy. Also , as I sat down , there was an informal vibe in the house as the seats were slowly filled with students and theatre. People were everywhere trying to get to their seats as quickly as possible and groups of friends were busy discussing their plans for the weekend. All these things contributed to the upcoming production. It provided that this was not going to be a serious play.
