Puzzling

It’s been a few weeks since I ventured to the Cobb Play House to see Virginian’s Real and I’m just now giving my own humble opinion of the show. The performances in this original story were well done and fit the setting of the story, however I felt the story was some what like building a puzzle. As the plot unfolded and the story and especially the characters seemed to begin building momentum to what seemed like would be a fun and interesting ending the play was over. I felt like I had finished building a puzzle and had a few pieces missing. I’m sure the writer had this ending in mind so we could all imagine the ending ourselves, but it just left me feeling like “wow”, are you sure It’s over. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

Virginia(Stacy Vaccaro) was excellent.And so was Valerie(Bobbi Rae Wall),Vicki (Mallory O Bryan),(Dana O Bryan), they were great!Also Virginia as a child (Tristin Vaccaro) was very good, and Veronica(Valerie Halick)and Melissa Tillery who played Valerie as a child also did a great job.Also Velma (Elaine Bishop) did a great job. But really everyone was great in the play!!!!!Everyone in this play made it seem real. Dont miss the last show tomorrow. I love Virginias Real !!! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

last week i fess i did say oklahoma was very, very ok. now youse got your revenge. after a god awful trip to ackworth now i know i was too harsh. where bigtop is clean, cobb play house is dirty. while big top is friendly, cobb play house is downrite mean. as bigtop has lots of people watchin, cobb play house has two doezn tops. ok feather get on with the show. ok. what is it you think? ok ill tell you. its mostly bland and boring. i cant hear everyone or if i can they gummble there words. the script trys hard to be funny but isnt. ok the actors try to make the most of it and at times they almost are funny but this isnt a good southern script. now ive seen attala county recntly and thats a good southern sript. this isnt no attala county. this is boring. whose at fault? director? incoherant acting? play wrighting? nasty seats? poop customer service? yeh, all of the above.

re: Virginia's Real review by "Feather" by firemansflame
First i would like to say that i agree with most of what you said about the playhouse, but in its defense, it does not have the financial backing of other theaters and it is doing the best it can with what it has. Except for the friendly part, there is no excuse for rudness. Sorry if you were treated unkind in any way. As for the acting, i must disagree, i feel the actors have really put their heart and soul into the characters and it is more the story line being a little confusing than the "incoherant acting" you refer to. Thank you for your review and i hope you will come see a few more shows at the theater before blowing it off totally. p.s. it's Acworth (no k)

To feather... by Keep It In Perspective
Was the guy behind the box office older with gray hair or middle aged with dark hair?
prespective by feather
a stocky dude with darkish hair and glasses i think. the man at narnia was nicer and older and grayer..
