Reviews & Being Said
The great Stephen King, master of darkness, stated he considered this play to be one of the scariest scripts of all time.
Huge thanks to Chris Steckler of ReviewVancouver dot Com for attending opening night and posting this informative review.
“Emma Graveson convincingly played a confident blind Susy Hendrix, our protagonist, with conviction. The bad guys, James Behenna as Mike Talman, Andrew Kenny as Sgt. Carlino, and Matthew Briard as Harry Roat Jr., worked the suspense well, exhibiting different personalities along the way – a rather hesitant-to-be-bad, sensitive Talman, a selfish, cowardly Cardino, and a perfectly hateful, sadistic Roat. Alexa Rojas Ponce, as Gloria, charmed the audience with her very real sudden changes from moments of adolescent angst to warm caring; and James Barclay gave a really fine and natural portrayal of Susy’s loving husband, Sam.”Christian Steckler ReviewVancouver

Director’s Talk Back
- The play was first performed in 1966. Does it still work now as well as it did then?
- Theatre often asks audiences to “suspend disbelief” and accept as real what is happening on stage. Was our production successful in doing that?
- Are iconic thriller plays still of interest? What other genres would you like to see Metro focus on in our season offerings?
Paranormal Investigation at Metro Theatre
In support of the show , the Paranormal Investigators Group HELTER SPECTRE is doing their first ever afterlife investigation of Metro. The group has many actors as members and has performed investigations on a number of other local theatres.
HELTER SPECTRE are collecting stories on Metro Theatre ghosts. Use the Contact Metro button at the bottom of the page to let us know about any of your experiences.
The investigation took place February 11th and the cast and crew of Wait Until Dark were invited. Check out some of the photos from the night.
