The Exonerated, written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, depicts the tales of 6 real life people sentenced to death row and are later found innocent. This show has the potential to be powerful. Unfortunately, Hope Productions delivers a mediocre version.
The casts performances are flat and lack emotional investment, leaving one to wonder about the connection to their work. However Kimberly Nicole and Melvin P. Huffnagle are exceptional as their work is vibrant and full.
This production was well-intentioned as it benefits the real survivors of death row. It was a noble effort that fell short of being a great piece of theater.
