    Has anyone ever worked for Castillo Theatre? It's not listed on "Gig & Tell."
    Any opinions?


    I checked out their website and it looks like they do pretty cool shows! Have you heard anything about callbacks?

    Whoa. This cult stuff is insane. Has anybody worked with the theatre?

    I have a friend who worked there last year, and I went to see him in the show. The space is gorgeous. The show on the other hand, needed a lot of work. There were four actors, all giving good performances and trying their best to cope with subpar material. The first two acts reminded me of a children's show, only with a more adult subject matter. In the third act it turned into a completely different show with lots of auio/visual effects, totally different style of music and a lot of dark social commentary. I really just went to support my friend, who agreed the show was a mess. All that being said, the biggest negative impression was left by the fact that they continue to call me every time they open a new show to ask if i want to buy tickets or donate money to the theatre. They even called my friend to essentially say "remember that money we just paid you for your work? do you want to give any of it back in the form of a donation to the theatre?"! Work is work, but I would consider this place a community theatre that just happens to be in midtown manhattan.
