Pay close attention to ‘Rainbow’; it will strike you as moving, smart, and powerful. Three men relate their stories and how they connect with and affect each others tales; all are disturbed and broken on some level, and it is their very humanness and the spectacular acting of the cast that makes the play shine colourfully. Meanwhile, the simplistic set design and mirrors direct all attention to the story. The ending is cryptic, never fully explaining itself, which could potentially vex the audience and it seems strange that for a show with such a name, the only lighting ever on stage is blue. Nevertheless, “Rainbow” shines with brilliance and covers a spectrum of dramatic feeling and powerful truth.
