What I liked

Loved the physicality in particular! Marcus moves with agility and finesse. Appreciated that he offered a moment to ask questions at the end so we could learn more about the historical foundations of the play.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

An impressive display of character work and physicality in this inventive adaptation of religious-historical subject matter. Marcus is a consummate storyteller and performer, seamlessly transitioning from character to character using both vocal and physical differentiation. He maintains a high level of energy throughout the hour, keeping the audience engaged and involved in this entertaining retelling of pivotal moments in Solomon’s life. I learned a lot of things I never knew I never knew about the Bible during this show, but it never felt didactic. Bravo!
