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!

superb job team evam. The dance, the music in between the scenes.. set the mood very well. Paul, Corrie and Mrs.Banks were brilliant. Is there any chance of getting my hands on ur scripts for this one and Art? These are my fav plays so far and id really like to read the script for some of the nuances i might have missed out while watching the play. Keep up the great work and its been great watching all ur plays so far.

since evam started we have dreamt of doing barefoot .. but we never had enough money and the right team ..both of these came together this time and are we glad at the results!!

we at evam are very very happy that u guys have liked the show.. it took more than 2 months, loads of systems.. and a team of young enthu maniacs for it to happen the way it did..the visible team of actors do win accolades..but the brilliant effort of the crew of evam is what makes barefoot so professional and magical at the same time!

our last 2 shows in chennai on 19th and 20th at savera ...looking forward to the finale:)..if all goes well we should be travelling to bangalore, coimbatore and hyderabad with barefoot soon!!wish us luck!

replying to earlier blogs- yes we are the same group who performed at hubba, and as for scripts.. we will be happy to share them with you- let us know your contact details.

keep blogging us with your feedback guys- makes a huge difference to team evam:)

Is barefoot in the park the best play so far? Well, as far as the script goes i liked Art better, but considering the overall performance, stage settings, marketing and professional touches, Barefoot in the park is the best id say.
By the way, been hearing about Evam Inderjit. is this also related to Evam and can i have more details about this?
