Michael Evans Lopez is an amazing performer. He is able to subtly engage and shift characterization to tell a complex, bizarre - and quite often charming - story directed very, very well by Maria Pasquarelli.

The first half of the show I was reminded of Taxi Driver, the way DeNiro truly went into the mind of a lonely man who constructs his own framework to get through a crazy and sometimes cruel world. ... full review
