Great play about a fascinating person. MPR brought this man to life so we could experience the highs and lows of an amazing character from days gone by. You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy MUNGO. Bravo! ... full review

Even if you're not a fan of America's favorite pastime, you will be a fan of MUNGO! An expertly crafted love story disguised as an autobiography of an infamous baseball player. I felt as though VL himself was sharing his story with me. Powerful stuff.... full review

I knew nothing about Mungo. Nothing. And I was never bored. I wanted to know more. It was simply written and simply acted. That said it was NOT simple. It was sharp, smart, witty and funny.

The writers and actor wrote a well thought out, witty, and original play about the life of a little known baseball player named Van Lingle Mungo. While the stories he told were interesting, it was the way Van interacted with the audience that I found most entertaining. While Van had a lot of natural talent, it was his lack of self control, both on and off the field, that kept him from going down in history as one of the all time greats. It really is a one of a kind show. ... full review
