KATE O'TOOLE certified reviewer June 14, 2013
A stirring, gripping one-man show driven by poetic language, as well as vivid imagery that ranges from sublime to horrifying. While the subject matter is heavy and the text penned by a brilliant academic, the performance is fully engaging, inspiring laughter, tears, and thought provoking discussion long after the house lights have come up. Highly recommended!... full review
ANGELA SAUER certified reviewer June 11, 2013
Truly stunning and thought-provoking production. At one point, I was shaking in my seat, overwhelmed by the shocking tragedy before me. At several others, I surprised myself by laughing. Gorgeously poetic language, with wonderful juxtaposition of comic and absurd moments amongst so many heavy ones. Spell-binding work. A must-see!... full review

This hour long show feels much shorter--time does not pass while watching, listening, staying tuned. From beginning to end, different elements inlcuding video footage, acting and poetry get woven together in always different ways. There is confusion--how could it not be given the focus on one little chaotic moment in history--yet it all takes shape, and then changes shape again. What keeps all of is together is above all the poet/performer whose voice carries through the questioning of the events with no intention to settle for any one response. This is a great performance to be watched more than once.... full review
BOB LEGGETT certified reviewer June 30, 2013
This dramatic recitation of his book by Jamey Hecht was well choreographed with visual multi-media and the strong, soothing voice of Hecht. It was obvious of his passion for the events surrounding the assassination of JFK, and his performance reflected that passion. This is a worthy piece of Fringe history.... full review
