Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
You have a choice. You could call it “And Then There Were None” or you could go with “Ten Little Indians.” Either way it is fun.
At least it is at the Riverside Community Players theater where director Phil Homer has turned his cast loose on the venerable Agatha Christie tale.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says it takes a little while for this production to get its balance. But after that, he notes, it is an enjoyable ride.
The show follows a time-honored formula. Ten people are stranded in a remote house on an even more remote island.. One by one, they are being killed off and the murderer is someone in their ranks.
That’s definitely creaky stuff, Sokolsky says. But it is more than enough to set the pace for a brisk production that stumbles a bit but seldom falters.”
