My overall impression

THE PLAYER KING (Platinum Medal)
Darin Dahms has worked on his one man show based on life of Edwin Booth (1833-1893); considered the greatest American actor of the 19th century and the older brother of John Wilkes Booth, for a number of years.
He will stage it every so often as he did for this year’s Fringe.
When he decides to stage it again go and see it.
If when that happens, you happen to be held prisoner chained by your leg in a basement somewhere, well then chew through your leg and crawl to wherever Dahms is playing.
Trust me; you will see a performance that will stay with you all your life.
It’s unlikely you’ll ever see a one man show about Van Gogh performed by a great artist. In “The Player King” you can see a show about a great actor performed by a man who epitomizes what that means.
Superbly directed by Paul Koslo.
Brilliantly stage managed by Carl Garcia.

I SAW 57 SHOWS THIS YEAR AND REVIEWED 43 OF THEM. TO READ ALL MY REVIEWS, AS WELL TO SEE MY PICKS FOR THE BEST OF THE FRINGE, GO TO “THE TVOLUTION.COMTHANK YOU ALL FOR SOME AMAZING SHOWS!
