My overall impression

This was a well-written, well acted, and extremely enjoyable and stimulating play. Both men were on their A game: we had never seen either actor perform previously, and it was truly a treat watching them both take these two difficult personalities and make them their own. Dennis Neal’s embodiment of Scatman Crothers was uncanny, and he brings a warm and heartfelt performance that will stay with you for a long time. Rob Locke presented us with a self-aware and memorable Orson Welles- delightful and intriguing. When one learns that Scatman and Orson were in the same room auditioning, one would love to be that fly on the wall…in the case of this performance, you get to be just that.
