TRACY VEAL certified reviewer June 10, 2013
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. ... full review

In Wallace Shawn's The Fever actor Brad Light gives an electrifying performance. I was completely riveted by the subject matter and the clarity and richness of his nuanced performance. None of Shawn's questions are answered and that is the way it should be. The questions are relevant and completely uncomfortable. After the performance was over I felt drained and perplexed. Exactly the way I should feel. Mr. Light gives everything he has and then some! Credit also goes to directors Rebecca Sigl and Christopher Neiman for helping their actor navigate difficult and dangerous waters. The pacing and timing was spot on! ... full review

Brad Light was so accessible and real and full. This was quite fascinating because it wasn't really acting....but it was ;) I felt like this man was really in the midst of this crisis and sharing it with me. I definitely recommend The Fever!... full review
