Marcus is an incredible storyteller who can transport you into a whole new world. The way he tells the story is reminiscent to a bard from another time, and it is absolutely entrancing. You will feel like you've been swept up into the past, into the world of Solomon. Marcus is delightfully entertaining and energetic and infuses so much physicality into the piece.

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!... full review

Completely blown away by Marcus' artistry and mastery of such a historic and complex story. Truly impressed by the beautiful, musical dialogue he wrote and his ability to seamlessly integrate modern references for comedic relief. I went in knowing about 4% about Solomon and left feeling like I truly learned and experienced something amazing. Wish I could create something so unique! Well done, and congratulations! ... full review
