My overall impression

#SeeItLA – There are some actors that when they perform Shakespeare, it doesn’t sound like they are reciting poetry, it sounds like they are speaking in their native tongue. Darin Dahms is one of those actors. So it is only fitting that he should portray Junius, Edwin and John Wilkes Booth, actors reknowned for theyr prowess with Shakespeare’s roles. The Player King is an intense look into the lives of these three men, at the most trying times of their lives. Dahms, a consummate performer, transitions between the three men easily and embodies their heartbreak beautifully. For those unfamiliar with the lives of these men, there is a brief biography of each in the program, and Dahms takes care of the rest. This is truly a beautiful piece that shouldn’t be missed.

Star Trek, Marlowe, Zero G! A once in a lifetime opportunity to see Tamburlaine and Klingons together. "EPIC!" "Not to be missed!" "Genius"
