Special Effects, Acting Are Outstanding

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press And Guide April 1998

An old theater adage states that a show's tech should not overpower the acting - unless you are doing Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera." This rule has some truth to it, but is also an easy excuse for weak acting. If the cast is strong enough, it should be able to withstand any competition on stage.
