TCTB Review Roundup: THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN at Lyric Arts

Four of our bloggers couldn't resist the draw of a contemporary thriller Lyric Arts in Anoka, checkout out what they thought of The Girl on the Train which runs through February 5th.

The Stages of MN wants to assure you "the staging is so inventive and the performances so good that I feel sure those familiar with the plot and resolution with still have a thoroughly entertaining night at the Theater." http://bit.ly/3iF3biZ
While our newest Blogger One Fan Show felt the show was flawed he did find some merit in the production "The entire production team must also be commended for obviously bringing a wealth of ideas to this new staging and following through on them." bit.ly/3CSHNxw
Play off the Page has a much better time with the production "The creative team at Lyric Arts has somehow combined the feeling of reading a book and getting into the characters’ heads with the dynamic elements of film to the intimacy of a live performance. This is a must-see!" http://bit.ly/3Xxc6lt
Finally Cherry and Spoon weighs in and the tally comes up Fresh cherries "A great cast, a suspenseful story (especially if you've never read the book or have forgotten the ending, like I had), and a tight interplay between recorded scenes and live performances make for an entertaining night (or afternoon) at the theater."
