Dry your tears, Joss Whedon fans! Thought you missed Balagan's wildly popular production of the sensational internet musical last summer? Well, kids, it's bigger, it's badder, and IT'S BACK! This time at the elegant ACT Theatre in downtown Seattle. You've been given a second chance - we trust you won't waste it.
We'd like to draw your attention to Kyrin's review of Balagan's first iteration of the production currently playing at ACT:
Review of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog at Balagan Theatre by Kyrin C.
I would like to first point out that I am a crazy Dr. Horrible fan. I adore everything about the original Internet videos and I even have them on my computer via iTunes. I have watched the commentary and I would give anything to hang out with the actual cast. Joss Whedon is my hero. When I saw the opportunity to see the show live, I generally freaked with excitement. My mom is the one who introduced me to the world of Dr. Horrible, so, naturally, I had to take her with me. We went, and I have to say, we were not disappointed. I laughed so hard at times that I was almost in tears. The theatre itself was very small, but very fitting for the show. The actors assumed all their roles to perfection and brought the joy of the Doctor's blog to the stage. They also included several song numbers that were not in the original show, but added a lot to the stage. If given the opportunity, I would definitely go again, and again, and again, and again.
