I had the opportunity to attend As It Is In Heaven at the Emmett Robinson Theatre at the College Of Charleston on Sunday, October 6, 2013. The play was written by Arlene Hutton and directed by Beth Lincks, who is a professor at the College. Overall, I thought it was a good play. It was very simple, with only a few characters, simple set design, and only one set of costumes. The main source of income came from the ticket sales, which ran at $15 per ticket, while tickets for students, faculty, staff, and seniors over the age of 60 were only $10. The play was slightly confusing for me, since I had no idea what the play was about. It was easy to follow once the story started.
Everything ran smoothly from a management perspective. The show started right on time, and people found their seats with or without the help of an usher. One thing I found that maybe could have been worked on is the fact that there was no intermission. At 95 minutes, it’s a short production, but we were informed of no intermission approximately thirty seconds before the play started. I felt they should have announced that ahead of time so theatre goers like myself could have planned accordingly. Besides this extremely small detail, I would definitely recommend people to see the show, though unfortunately it had a short run, therefore there are no more opportunities to see it.
