Directed by Sheldon Epps, this opulent-looking, comfortably-paced production certainly captures the essence of Christie's famous novel, compacting it enough for the stage in an acceptably truncated way that hits most of the story's expected peak points. All told, the changes Ludwig enacted in this admirable, if slightly straightforward iteration should still satisfy those very familiar with the novel and will also, in turn, entertain the others with an easily-deducible mystery that presents enough intrigue and curiosity to keep one invested... Overall, La Mirada's slick, lavish stage production of a literary classic is a visual wonder that will have you feeling slightly sophisticated for having chosen to see the show as your evening's entertainment.
