Shawshank Redemption-Hope Springs Eternal

Hope is a Good thing, maybe the Best Thing and No Good Thing ever Dies.

Like the film Schindler’s List, Tacoma Little Theatre’s production of The Shawshank Redemption portrayed humanity at its worst and at its best. Also, I had the same feeling upon leaving TLT, as I did upon viewing Schindler’s List; that I had gone through a profound, emotional and morally uplifting experience. On a less personal level, the production may not have had Steven Spielberg nor Hollywood big-bucks, but its quality was on a par with anything I have ever seen on Broadway or the West End. It was a tribute to director Blake R. York and Tacoma Little Theatre.
