I was looking forward to watching "Captors", but the show was a true disappointment and a bore. I saw this play on Friday, November 11, 2011. Even though I sat in row E, I could not hear the dialogue from at least two of the actors -- they needed to enunciate their words. The people who sat around me, in rows D and F also expressed difficultly in hearing and/or understanding the lines. Also, the fake accents contributed to the difficulty in listening to the play. That said, the scenes need serious editing -- Act I can be cut by half an hour and not lose any meaning. This was almost the worst play I have seen at the Huntington. I think "The Circle Mirror Transformation" was slightly worse. Also, the actors looked similar and acted similarly. The play is too long at nearly 3 hours.
