I enjoyed “A Life” by Jake Gyllenhaal more than “Sea Wall”.
Overall though, the format of the show felt more like a book reading rather than a stage performance.
Head Over Heels ❤️❤️❤️
Never seen a house more electrified. The energy on and off stage is absolutely insane tonight.
Thank you Head Over Heels for a fabulous run of dance, music, and theatre. I’m glad to see the show one more time, but am also so sad to see you go. Happy closing. All the best on your next adventures!
Thanks for the great fun tonight, Head Over Heels!!!
Catch the Head Over Heels cast at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow!

1984… the story of our times?
The play is shocking and violent. Several reviews describe audience members fainting, vomiting, and even begging the cast to stop. With scenes of execution, torture, blood everywhere, this show is definitely not for the faint of heart.
The set design was creative, peeling away to reveal how our private space is not what we think it is, in a society under surveillance.
But the actual content was… not super shocking??? Or, not as shocking as the book? Or, not as shocking as the current news? I read the book a long time ago, but remembered it as being more about the danger of thoughts (than the physical violence). Of course, the latter is used to suppress the former. However, for all the extreme violence on stage, I just felt the play could have done more with less.
