Number One With a Bullet

With In a Little World of Our Own, HotHouse hits the target

Apart from one wooden portrayal, the production's only irritation concerns a gunshot that occurs late in the play. A sign in the lobby alerted viewers to the shot, as did a reference in the playbill. Then before the play began, a HotHouse staffer informed the audience that anyone upset by the shot could receive a refund. Enough already.

But here's a thought. Why not take the theater up on its offer? After the show, get your money back. Then proceed straight to the box office and purchase another ticket. In a Little World of Our Own is a watershed event in St. Louis theater. Surely a play this rich, a production this textured, warrants a second viewing.
