On the sides of the stage, each side has three chairs for actors to relax and prepare. Each actor has a white board for games. They do not focus on the set design include the special effect but the elements of the show. However, the only thing that is counted as set design is the house rake.
In my opinion, this show can run more smoothly if they have more equipment such as special effect, projection, and props for entertaining. Because this show is not like any other show, for example a drama or a musical show, however, some moving lights and props will help a lot for the show. For example, when they’re interacting with the audiences, and trying to act something without saying it and try to let other actors to guess it, it is hard for audiences to visualize. If there are some hand props that they can use, it will be much better. Also, their background just too boring to me. They need a projection for different scenes, it will be much better that way so we know what are they doing and we can visualize the action in our minds. The only time they use the special effect is to turn the light darker during the show and turn it back on during the interaction and break time. They can add a little special effect such as smoke or fog at the beginning of the show for greeting, and maybe some during the show.
Overall, I think the show is successful according to the element they use in the show. It is hilarious
