Spotlight on Lake associate Jeffrey Leibham reviews “hang” …

***RECOMMENDED*** As the house lights fade at the beginning of Remy Bumppo’s current production of “hang” the audience hears the usual pre-recorded audio message kindly requesting that all cell phones should be turned off and candy that is wrapped should be opened now. One can only assume that the male voice they are hearing is that of Remy Bumppo’s Producing Artistic Director Nick Sandys, as he goes on to thank, specifically by name, several individual donors who have made this production of “hang” possible. He concludes by inviting all of the audience members to “sit forward and enjoy the show.” That last part of advice, to sit forward intently listening instead of the tradition of sitting back and relaxing is particularly essential to fully appreciate this complex and intricately constructed drama, which demands that you pay very close attention as key details are divulged. 3 SPOTLIGHTS
