Fantastic show! A real tour de force. It's an amazing piece of theatre...a fascinating piece of history told in a spellbinding way. It will be the quickest 90 minutes you'll ever experience! Go!!!...
BOOTH IS THE BOMB!
no need to know much about Booth's history - the play will tell you all, and in the MOST engaging way!
I came away disliking Julius (the father), understanding John Wilkes (the brother) and loving Edwin (the star)
Very tight and well written, well directed, lit and staged, the 90 min production sped by as I was taken on a wild ride with this family.
What a performance! I was very impressed. Darin truly did a masterful job of writing and starring in this one man show. I had not read any reviews or descriptions about the play, other than that he played many different characters with original monologues along with a few classic Shakespeare monologues. I was better for not knowing too much about it before attending, because towards the end, when I realized who the main character actually was, everything fell into place. I got goosebumps many times throughout. He manages to weave in some great commentary about the state of theatre. The Player King is a fantastic show for a theatre enthusiast, or anyone who really appreciates complex characters and the many levels of a fine actor....
