Proof at DBS Arts Centre

I've seen the movie Proof with Gweneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins, and thought it not bad. I was pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed the staged version at DBS Arts Centre in Singapore much more when I saw it last week. The acting was very good, and the story was very well played out.

Overall, Proof is a very enjoyable play, though the end is something of a letdown. Still, David Ashburn's script coaxed a lot of laughs out of the Singapore audience. It was a lot of fun to be there and enjoy the performance.

There are a lot of great shows coming up at DBS Arts Centre over the next few weeks too. I've got plans to see A Midsummer Night's Dream and Top Girls before the end of this month. Top Girls is one of those plays I've never gotten to see onstage, and have always wanted to see how it plays out. I am really looking forward to that.

There are some really great lines in Proof, and the delivery at this performance was mostly spot-on. It bodes well for the next few shows I'm planning to see there as well. May is really a good month for theatre in Singapore!
