It is fantastic that we are going to the opening! So as we don´t have the tickets for the play yet, due to that fact, we must all meet at the theatre. Be there in good time,please, so that there won´t be any problem.

Awful spectators! People were coming in and going out all the time. They applauded from time to time, I don't know why.

I didn't like the play very much because, in my opinion only the actress did well her work.

And the clothes... Currently stage managers of classic theatre adore to mix modern and old clothing to represent that the subject is not old-fashioned. I disagree and frequently that can result absurd and a ridiculous thing.

I´ve liked the play as I always like the classics. However I admit that is not Tirso´s best play, it is a little slow and repetitive but the play is worth it all the same. The acting was not so good in my opinion. The two leading actors were fine. I liked Queen Mary and Don Juan the others were quite deficient. I think Abigail Tomey has improved and she does the role very well as it is a difficult one and she has to do everything, she portrays a credible Queen a just and judicious Queen if we compare her to her son what can we say?? She thrives where he sinks and sinks and sinks. It is a pity that the budget is so low, and that it shows, I suppose you can always see it but it is too obvious. Couldn´t the director have done something? I´m sure she could. Welll I enjoyed it but I think there´s a big difference between the leading actors and the rest of the cast.

Basically I agree with Marta. Abigail was the best of the play, I liked her more than Naya. I also agree with Lidia, if a play is difficult or a bit slow and, in addition, people is all the time to and fro, you get distracted and , in some way, it seems to be more boring and long. I didn’t like the infants of Castilla dressed like gangsters from Chicago, this fact made the male characters even less credible (as if they weren’t already little enough credible due to the acting).
I couldn’t help comparing this queen with Hamlet’s mother. Faced with their husband’s death, they act and react in opposite ways, the Spanish as the perfect mother, queen and widow, the Danish as a selfish woman only caring for herself.
The text was a bit heavy but, were the actors to be better, we would enjoy the play a lot more. It was a pity they were so bad. I think Carmen is quite right when says not everybody can perform the classics.

There are not bad scripts but bad cast. Many people went out the room by saying that Tirso de Molina´s play was so heavy, slow, boring. It is not, probably, the best text of his but yesterday´s failure came from actors. Both main characters were the best, she knew how to speak, loudlier than the rest, with a more understandable speech (a little bit forced sometimes but tolerable); he knew how to move, stylishly. On the contrary, it was inconveivable the ugly appearance of the rest: round-shouldered and with totally stretched legs...
I am not able either to forget the two completely unnecessary ninjas performing three never-ending figths...
As to the play itself I liked Queen María´s sense of Spanish unity, which nowadays is completely lost.
