Review by KAT MICHELS

June 15, 2015

My overall impression

The open and close of this show are pretty rough, and I don’t know that they are completely needed, but even so it is a solid #SeeItLA. It is a sweet story that posits a possible outcome of Amelia Earhart’s fateful last flight, as performed by a set of actors doing a live radio play. Ramona Creel’s character was in charge of the sound effects for the radio show, and she did a great job with them. I like that the actors weren’t glued to the microphones the whole time and were allowed to get swept up in the story. However, I would have liked them to have spent more time at the microphones to solidify the radio show aspect a bit more. There are definitely aspects of the production that could be improved, but the story is worth seeing.
