What I liked

Andrew Perez takes you on an absorbing, journey into a time in the life of Klaus Kinski. Even if you are not familiar with Kinski’s legacy, from the first moment of the play, Perez pulls you – ready or not – on a bumpy, wild ride into the mind and of this passionate, tortured soul.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Wild abandon are the words that come forth. But, where this show could easily have become be a self absorbed, free-for-all, Perez’s performance is skillfully crafted/guided by Eric Johnson. Just when you think the mad, passionate, rant will churn into something unintelligible, it drops in and beautifully takes the audience along. The fiber of Klaus’ life is woven, unraveled, and rewoven. And by the end, there are a few loose threads you’ll still wish to pull.
