ARSENIC & ROSES ended a month-long run at the Bath House Cultural Center yesterday. The half-hour one-act by Brad McEntire was part of the 2009 Festival of Independent Theatres. A sweet and simple comic romance, the show was largely misunderstood and/or dismissed by the local Dallas reviewers, who were looking for something more "edgy" from the festival showings.
The above clip is from the closing night performance. Judging from the laughter in the audience's response, they seems to differ in opinion from most of the reviewers.
