The Springfield News Leader adds:
Director Tracy Moran said there is laughter and plenty of tears.
“Bring plenty of tissues. It’s a love story and not in the typical way. It’s one of my favorite novels, and I thought doing the stage version would be a gift to give back to the community,” Moran said.
“The stage version is a little different than the novel, but it follows the book. It’s great for people to see what they read,” Moran said.
While the stage version of “Wuthering Heights” is slightly different than the heavy drama most high school students remember, the biggest difference is the actors on stage, Moran said.
“I have an amazing cast,” Moran said. “People are going to be blown away by the array of emotions they portray, and the cast does a fantastic job with conveying these emotions.”
Veteran PFAA actor Dalton McCart agreed, but said that the rollercoaster of emotions can be a challenge in his role as Heathcliff.
“This is my first real lead role and I’m having a blast with it. It is a challenge to show a range of emotions Heathcliff feels, especially when they’re not emotions you personally feel. Healthcliff is a very emotionally unstable character,” McCart said.
“I think those in the audience who are not familiar with the story may find the character Heathcliff somewhat disgusting, but overall they will find the show excellent. It’s very deep and a lot more serious than a lot of other shows PFAA has performed,” McCart said.  (Robert Johnson)
