Matt and I had the opportunity to attend the dress rehearsal for the play based on Lois Lowry's masterpiece. The cast had not yet gone through the play from start to finish, so it added an extra level of tension to the performance. The production went off with only a few flubbed lines. Tristan Comella was great as Joanas, the boy tapped to become the receiver and Andres Alcala was a wizened and wise Giver. Set design was very good too, managing to illustrate the transfer of information between the Giver and receiver.
