Geeky Live Theatre – “In Love and Warcraft”
Review of ‘In Love and Warcraft’ from my friend and WoW consultant Earl Baylon!
“A romantic comedy set against a WoW backdrop? Count me in. I know part of the concern with people of our geeky ilk beig portrayed in theatrical pieces is that they come of as caricatures rather than multi-faceted characters. I watched a production of this play a couple years ago, and I can say that’s not the case. The characters feel like real people, relatable, and quite likable. And despite the fact that WoW is definitely an integral part of the play’s framework, it still has broad appeal. Experience as a gamer isn’t a requirement for enjoyment, but those that have it might appreciate the references that much more. It’s more is an exploration of the way relationships are evolving in a hybrid digital/real world space, and that’s great.”
