Our weekend shows - a report
The walk barefoot, the sing barefoot for a cause, the light music concert,the movie screenings of "Barefoot in the park" at the Park and in the end, the play itself, "Barefoot in the Park". It was a culmination of the efforts put in over 3 months and in the end, evam did not let their patrons down.
Starting from the decor of the venue to minute details like oiling of doors, attention to detail was the motto of this production. It was an attempt to make this production, evam's best managed production. The area around Sivagami had an almost festive-like atmosphere as the audience started coming in from 6:30. The front-end team did a superb job at managing people and the show started by 7:15 with the wedding of Paul and Corie. The mime before the wedding had Aishwarya and Manikandan dancing with grace and elan.The play started and the audience was engrossed in the domestic life of Paul and Corie.During the interval, the Albanian restaurant scene was enacted outside the auditoriun with Mr.Velasco, Mrs.Banks, Paul and Corie and an entourage of dancers.The second half featured the ups and downs of their married life and how Paul and Corie dealt with them.
End result- a satisfied and visibly beaming audience
In the last show, there was a major problem with the lights. However, Ishwar, one of the crew members descended and took it upon himself to see to it that the show went on.This is to salute Ishwar and the evam team for having pulled off a great show and for having the fire to go on and "better themselves".
All those who came and watched our show over the weekend, please tell us what you thought of it....and we are back the next weekend!
