No Exit: Jean Paul Sartre

Last night, Luiz and I saw an off-Broadway performance of Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit. You can read a translation of the French play here: http://www.nyu.edu/classes/keefer/hell/sart.html

About (3) people in hell expecting physical torturous chambers hell and instead finding one filled with psychological torture. The lead actor could have been stronger. The female lead was very good as an actress, not so much as a vocalist. She performed a revue of Juliet Greco (jazz singer who had a love affair with Miles Davis) vocals in French/English/German...stilted expression, not much soul. 25 minutes of my life I'll never get back. :)
