Mr. Largess somehow managed to memorize a 90 minute synopsis of Dante's vision of Hell,and his presentation had me enthralled pretty much throughout.
I enjoy Dante in Italy where we celebrate Inferno with parties and all the children are familiar with it. It was good to see it on the stage and it was very clever.
I have only heard references and seen glimpses of the renowned trip to the underworld. Giannarelli and Largess and the Washington Stage Guild have taken me there, with all of it's horror and glory (and very personal animosity via Dante!) The sound, set and projections and other tricks up Giannarelli's sleeve helped to keep this must-know story moving.
