I watched this play on friday the 28th but i didnt intend to blog about it because there is nothing to say..
Nevertheless the brochure was laying here for 2 days, so i scanned it and i ........ am blogging about it.
This is my second or third theatre experience in kuwait, this play was purely intended for the aid of Lebanon, trust me that is the ONLY reason why i went.
Otherwise, with my respect to all the "actors" it was HORRIBLE
I never heard the word fiel "elephant" so many times in my life like i did in this hour long play..

The main character is an obvious "abdel hsain abdel reda" wannabe..
I am not adding more, i just wanna say that i am glad the money is going for a good cause but those guys need MORE drama classes..

Strange .. I went to their show ib Mahrahan il khrafi.. and they were outstanding !

I swear I felt so proud of them.. And Ali Kakoli reminded me of 7saino, but he has his presence on stage..

Horrible?! We must have seen different plays.. cause it was amazing for such a young group..!

The play has a heart touching concept, that is un arguable, nevertheless, i think what happened was that there were last minute additions to the play, for example out of the blue in the middle of the play they brought up the "taw7eed el jensiya" thing!!!! It was not connected in anyway to that specific scene! similar points like this were added here and there thus the play lost it's harmony completely.
Ali Kakoli was very good to be honest, i love abdel hsain thats why i liked Ali's acting so much, but the rest oh no, excuse me they did pretty bad on the 28th!!!
behbehani "the king" was good too, loved the part where he takes the mobile from Ali and shouts :"na7no fi 7ala la tathreeb 3alaihaaaaaaaaa" that cracked me up :) that Kid had a future.

I guess additions like that are uncalled for, trying too hard is always a turn off. However, keep in mind that the last masra7ya Ive been to in Kuwait is Bomtai7, where the typical dawood 3eemi accent and '6a3 wayhik' ' sha3rek falafil' level of jokes .. So with that in mind, seeing such a serious young ambitious group made a really good impression.

On the other hand, If I compare it to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels -the last play ive been to in Broadway- and compare Ali Kakooli to John Lithgow then Kharij man6aqt itagh6ya will be definitely be reduced to Zilch.

So I guess its all in relative. :)

P.S. I actually enjoyed kharej minqat itagh6aya more than dirty rotten Scoundrels ;p... eeh la hadaraja ;p

:) Good for them you liked it that much, i am not exaggerating when i say that 15 minutes after the start of the play, the first 2 rows got totally empty!! people left and waited outside..

My last foreign theatre experience was Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. i cant compare comedy to politics, but the essence is 180 degrees different..

tara the same group "jeelwa3i" has another performance in a different play "donno what or when or where :/", but i wanna go to show my support :):)
