When people say theatre goers are usually over 40, they need to come to NoHo.  The Sherry Theatre was packed with "20 something people" enjoying a stage production creatively interwoven with film.  I don't want to give away the plot of the story but I will say "Don't miss this thought provoking play about power, greed and horrifying evils of insane asylums today.  The question that stayed with me after the show was..."What is normal when it comes to the human condition?"

The overall acting of this 20+ member cast production was extremely good.  Wolfgang Bodison and Lukas Behnken's performances were outstanding.  I must applaud the director and writer, Scott Haze for creating this intriguing and compelling production that is on the forefront of our societal ills.  The dialog was real and hard charging.  Production value was above normal for a "blackbox" production with clever lighting and sets.

Whether you are 18 or 80, this story will take you on emotional roller coaster as only a quality stage production can do.

Angel Asylum ends Oct 29...be sure to see this show.  Sherry Theatre 11052 Magnolia Blvd..323 841-1611  www.angelasylum.com
