Veronica’s Room
Vintage Theatre: 9/13 – 10/13

     “Veronica’s Room” will creep you out for days!
Dan Nolan, Rachel Bouchard and Anne Smith Myers

     Shrouded in white, Tanner Johnson Heck’s claustrophobic set design ushers us into this unsettling world accompanied by the ominous viola in Luke Allen Terry’s awesome sound design.

     At the top of the show a fussy old Irish woman and her oh so jolly husband are talking a lovely young woman into taking a room in their home. A somewhat enigmatic lady named Veronica once lived there.
     Sorry, but that’s all I’ll tell you regarding Ira Levin’s (Remember “Rosemary’s Baby?”) spine tingling thriller. Any more and I’d be giving you spoilers along with some goose bumps and you need to experience this one first hand.

Rachel Bouchard and Drew Hirschboeck

     Director Bernie Cardell has done superb work in the casting. Man, Woman, Girl and Boy are played by: Dan Nolan, Anne Smith Myers, Rachel Bouchard and Drew Hirschboeck respectively.

      Cardell directs this taut thriller with a meticulous eye. Everything has a Hitchcockian feel to it and the suspense had this reviewer on the edge of his seat throughout.

     The set-up in Act One is one of the most intriguing to have been seen in many a season. It allows for a second act of harrowing contrast in which all four of these actors get to unleash a torrent of powerful emotion.
     They’ve extended the show a week already. If fans of this kind of amped up nerve jangling thriller get a whiff of the excitement in “Veronica’s Room” the management could be required to extend again.
