The Infernal Comedy

Subtitle is confessions of a serial killer. I wanted to kill someone before it was over.

We went to see this because it was starring John Malkovich. Unfortunately that was not enough.
He spoke with a fake Austrian accent – in my view unnecessary because he was supposed to be dead. Two sporanos sang a series of death arias all by different classical composers, but somehow they all sounded alike. Italian but no surtitles, although you didn’t really need a translation.
Totally boring – one of those times when you really wished for an intermission.

    Infernal yes, comedy no.Sure, a performance consisting of a series of death arias and an exploration of an Austrian serial killer's motivation is likely to be weird. However, there is good weird and bad weird. We have seen several very strange concepts realized into fascinating productions.This was only fascinating in the way a car accident you drive by is fascinating. I wish we could have driven past this one, instead of having to sit there.It sucked.
