My overall impression

Brad C Light’s brilliant performance of Shawn Wallace’s insightful “Fever” is disturbing, angst ridden, and mesmerizing as his range of emotion perfectly mirrors the shifts of his tortured conscience. When enraged with realization of his unjustifiably privileged everyday life having dire consequences on the poor at global level, his face distorts beyond recognition. He questions, raves against, and then comes to term with his (our) actions. After witnessing this extraordinary performance in an intimate theatre, one can not leave it behind. It lives uncomfortably in your head for days (forever?). We were stunned when it ended to realize 80 minutes had passed so quickly.
