  • Derby Dinner's 'Wait Until Dark' too much wait, not enough dark

    “Wait Until Dark” is a taut drama which encourages the audience to expect that heroine Susy Hendrix will take back her home from invading thieves. But Derby Dinner Playhouse’s production fails to create that expectation. All the elements are there, but the directing is so by-the-numbers that we are left out. The blind Susy (Janet Essenpreis) is at the mercy of anyone who invades her home, but if she can get the apartment in darkness then she has leveled the playing field.
