Viva La Hypocrites Revolucion!
However; I not only drank in The Hypocrites' original, lively presentation of Pirates but sat, walked and moved around the beautiful world Sean Graney and his talented cohorts have created. In what I can only describe as a theatrical breath of fresh sea air, Graney's staging and directing were a wonder to experience. Many of the actors also sang and played musical instruments. The toy xylophone was a nice touch. They ran around half clothed which added to the youthful, exuberant, fun, hypocrisy of it all. Some might say this was a bit of a sacreligious interpretation of Pirates, while others might think that this is exactly what theater needs to stay alive and thrive right about now.
