There are very few large cast shows at Fringe where every single actor is on point at all times. But this is one of them. Great staging and direction by Victor Isaacs helping craft (and give) performances real and connected.

I advise witnessing it for yourselves.... full review

It's hard to overcome a strong memory like the one that Howard Rollins, Adolf Caesar, Denzel Washington, left in the film version of "A Soldier's Story" but this cast made me forget for a night.

I had never seen or read this play before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It's a very powerful story and the message is sadly still somehow relevant today.

The cast was excellent as was the ... full review

A SOLDIER'S PLAY is a fantastic show that is well performed and staged. On the surface this is a mystery. The story plays out in the deep south in the era of WWII. Immediately we are thrown into murder investigation and the complications that arise from it's circumstance. The journey to discover the murderer is engaging and deals with racial themes and cultural divides.... full review

Dynamite all around. I'd never seen this one performed live and boy am I glad I did. Even if you know the story, go anyway. It's great.... full review

A very strong and perfectly cast ensemble, with bare set and economical direction which allowed for the story and characters to truly shine. I'm very glad I had the opportunity to see A Soldier's Play. I wish the entire cast and production team much success. ... full review
