After reflecting on what I saw, I find myself unsure how to proceed with this review. But I will start by saying this: I have never been to a production that elicited such a strong positive reaction from the crowd. There was such uproarious laughter and clapping that the actors occasionally had to pause before delivering their next line. From the sounds of it, everyone absolutely loved the production. Then there was me. Little Miss Negative Nancy.
Writing aside, the production was very well done. The directorial debut of Venetia Lawless, this production went off without a hitch (except for a couple of line fumbles). The staging was well-executed and there was great use of physical comedy that helped bring the production to a whole new level. There was also a video at the beginning that gave a very short history of pornography, as well as a video at the end showing the trailers for the supposed films that the characters made. It was a fun idea and worked well to bookend the whole thing.
