The performance of Andrew Perez as Klaus Kinski is riveting, endearing and horrifying all at once. Hands down the most amazing performance I have seen at this year's Fringe.... full review

LA Theater at its best. Feels like you’re discovering the next Philip Seymour Hoffman. Andrew Perez was made for Kinski— embodiment bordering on possession. His performance was high voltage electricity. Going in I didn’t know what to expect. I’d only seen one of Kinski’s movies, the famous Fitzcarraldo, so I worried the subject matter might be too esoteric to appreciate. It wasn’t. The show was surprisingly easy to follow, visually captivating, and also very touching. A sympathetic portrayal of an actor who was probably not easy to like or understand in real life. You walk out of the theater caring about the violent-tempered Kinski, maybe against your better judgment.... full review

A lot of background work obviously went into this. The writing from Perez and the direction from Eric Johnson hone what could be a cathartic explosion into a dramatic piece of theater, whether you're familiar with Kinski or not. (If you're not, you'll be on Wikipedia and IMDb as soon as the ovation's over.)... full review

I felt that Andrew was riding a tidal wave of collected information about Kinski's life, like it was a bucking bronco, just hanging on for his life, raging from emotion to emotion, raw primal lust and power with all its highs and lows. It was quite an explosion of energy all throughout the show. ... full review

Andrew...there are just not enough perfect words to tell you just how much I loved every moment...but here are a few kinda good ones...;) I thought you were truly inspired, wondrous and mystically magical. Every color of the emotional palette was explored, exposed and illuminated in ways I could not have predicted or imagined. You brought humanity and understanding to KK and beyond...imploring us to look into our own spirit to find the darkness and the light and learn what they can teach us. Thank You with all my heart for all you give and all you Are. Eric Johnson...thank you for *everything*... Together, you and Andrew (and all involved) have created something that is far beyond the mere sum of it's parts. Sheer Bliss...every moment on thi... full review
