Clemson Players ‘Love and Information’ Review

Alexis Williams // Contributor
The minimalistic, avant-garde set of ‘Love and Information’ elevated the production to new heights.

The Clemson Players kicked off their 2023-2024 theatrical season on Oct. 2 with their production of “Love and Information.”

This production had a cast of 11 actors who showcased their different acting abilities. “Love and Information” consisted of multiple scenes where the actors played several characters, never playing the same one again. With the different topics that it touched, it created a whirlwind of emotions and reactions within the audience.

The acting alone was flawless, and I truly felt like I was seeing a different character every time the actors stepped onto the stage. I never knew what to expect, which allowed me to become deeply invested. This production allowed each actor to showcase their different acting skills by playing multiple characters.

The Bellamy Theater at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts was converted into a minimalistic set with a multileveled platform, allowing actors to change scenes effortlessly. The student production team did a fantastic job with the lights, music and props in the production. When stepping into the theater, my eyes immediately went to the different screens on top of the set, creating an abstract shape. It projected images and names of the scenes throughout the production, allowing the audience to better understand what the scene was about.

The props of the production were very well put together. While not every scene had props, each scene that had them added to the characters’ context and actions. With the audience having no idea what scene would be coming next, the props were crucial for the audience to understand what was happening.

With the unique style of the performance, the actors were dressed in very neutral clothing; however, based on the character they were performing next, a piece of clothing such as a cardigan, tie or hat would be added to define the character, pulling the audience’s attention more.

While this wasn’t a traditional production with a plot the audience could easily follow, students, faculty and family members left the theater with smiles on their faces, thanks to the passion and effort put into the production. The production runs every night until Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. The last showing will be on Oct. 8 at 3:30 p.m. You don’t want to miss it!
