The song is called "Closer" and it's by Nine Inch Nails. Not exactly
what I would have chosen for a production of any sort, but to each
his/her own. I find that song really creepy, and yet it's also somehow
appealing. How is it that something can make your stomach turn and be
somehow insightful all at once? I guess a lot of art is like that
somehow. I wasn't able to go to the Stratford festival this year. I
don't know whether I would have liked this production or not. It sounds
incredibly disturbing. I'd love to hear other opinions!
