My overall impression

Inventive and wildly entertaining. The simple black box transforms into different worlds with minimal props and projections. The virtuosic performer takes the stage with no apologies and never lets go.
One of the best shows I’ve seen in Los Angeles and one of the most engaging nights I’ve had in the theater. Darian is one of those rare artists that demands attention. His verbal gymnastics and visceral emotion bring forth subject matter that is on the tip of tongues and the recesses of our consciousness. He humanizes archetypes that are often seen as one dimensional ideas by truly embodying their lives with love and respect. He was like a shaman demanding empathy and understanding. A show full of beauty and triumph.
I was blown away. The humor subverts your defenses and leaves open to an a memorable experience. Everyone needs to see this masterful work.
