Review by DAVID ROSENBERG

June 27, 2014 certified reviewer

My overall impression

This was probably in my top five for the entire festival – with a little polish and tweaking, writer/director Brendan Russo’s examination of the forces and family life that shaped John Wilkes Booth could stand on its own at the Mark Taper Forum.

Kudos to producers Alexa Berry and Javier Sepulveda for a compelling production – with a special shout out to the amazing sound design. Creative use of space and light made this a highlight of the Fringe offerings.

The company’s acting was deep and revelatory – with a special shout out to players Steve Phelan, Aleksander Ristic, Vince Major and Erin McIntosh for vivid portrayals.
