I’m not the person who walks out of shows, but I had to. “Let Me Out” is plodding, only vaguely interesting, and very poorly written.
The actors did what they could with what they were given, but between awkward staging and winding, long-winded writing they never had a chance. It’s a shame because this show is clearly written with heart and personal truth, it’s just very badly done.
Arlene Tanner provides the much needed comic relief and makes certain moments work in a show full of “stage awkward” moments that are handled like a brick to your sensibilities. I feel bad for saying it but I can’t recommend any part of this show. Certainly not for the price of admission.
