Mcircd Sade: Excellent!

Summer is the time when
things slow down, snd people
tend t take it essier than dur-
ing the normal acsdemic yesr.
Judging from the Residential
College Players' production of
Marat Sade they are an excep-
tion to this generally held prin-
From the minute you enter
the East Quad Aud. you are
swept into the Charenton asy-
lum. Nurses greet you at the
door and brusquely tell you to
sign in with your name and oc-
cupation. You wonder what will
happen if you fail to sign in, and
soon find out, as those same
nurses beat te inmates of te
asylum on stage. Or is the stage
the entire auditorium, and are
the members of the audience
the actors? If the audience is the
actors. then they have a long
way to go to surpass the per-
formances turned in by the en-
tire cast from eight until about
The Persecution and Assassi-
nation of Jean-Paul Marat as
Performed by .the Inmatea of
the Asylum of Charenton Under
the Direction of the Marquis de
Sade is the finest production this
reviewer has seen in a long
time. The asylum is the audi-
torium, and with a group of in-
mates each with different mental
malady, it is amazing that one
doss not see repetition of what-
ever it is that makes each in-

mate an inmate. The ticks and
quirks are different and inven-
tive, but most of all they are
The entire product'on is beau-
tifully choreographed by Wendie
Abend. With a 32 member cast
on a small stage, the actors did
not run into each other, either
in their movements, or in the
acting. This is no small feat, and
Ahead is to he congratulated.
The choral numbers, under the
direction of Fredric Goldstein
were well done, and one easily
heard some of the best singing
from a a no-professional group
that rivaled some of te musical
groups on campus that spend an
entire term working towards a
single performance. the singers,
Richard Goodwin, Brian Grant,
James Guthrie, and Wendie
Ahead, all lent special vocal
talenis to the already fine
Katie Reifman as Charlotte
Corday, ad d ed a srprising
strong singing voice to a splen-
did acting performance, perhaps
the best showing of her career
with the R.C. Players. Reifmans
managed to bring about striking
transitions between her scenes
with a rather exaggerated Du-
perret, as played by Mark
Tompkins, and the scenes with
Richard S a 1 e, as Jean-Paul
One cannot find the superla-
tives to describe the perform-
ances of Sale and Richard Leh-

feldt as the Marqu de Sade.
They are both tremendous; Sale
even is intene as he sraches
himself in the tub, sad Leh-
fedt's performance is best sum-
med up as he laughs in the back-
ground while the inmates reduce
the play, the stage and the
asylum to smithereens. Whatever
you do, don't miss that.
It is hard to single out indi-
vidual actors for the mention
that everyone in the cast so
richly deserves. Dennis Fo~n, as
the mad animal, is in rthe fare-
front of the inmates even when
his movemen take him 10 the
corners and back of the stage,
as 's Dale Ann Winne.
Leora Man'schewi is s con-
vincing Simonne Evrar1, ad
adds perhaps the only bit of
mad reality to the performance
Connie Williams and Nancy
Levy are to be commended for
maintaining their air of polite
detachment that the parts of
Mine. Coumlmer and Mile. Coul-
mier respectively' require,
There is so much action going
on in center, tge ttt it is
difficult t turn one's aittention
to the sides, and yet e'ch actor
maintained the vigor of iy r
her role with aplomb.
Director Pamela Seamon is
to e commended for bringing
this most difficult play to the
Ann Arbor s um m er theater
If anyone ha been left with-
out special mention who had
anything to do with the perform-
'ance, it is not inentional
Although tnight at eight i
