This play is, in a word, intense. Hey, it’s about a pair of Chicago cops….duh!
And while we see a lot of cop shows on the big and little screens, this one on stage is unique in its approach. We see these two men relating to each other face to face…. and yet also speaking to the audience about each other. A tricky challenge, and it works!
That’s thanks to RJ DeBard and Andy Hoff who portray the characters and director John Kirby who’s taken this former Broadway play in another direction.
There’s humor, there’s conflict and mostly there’s the human dilemma of maintaining friendship amidst growing rivalry.
Adding to the production values: interesting video projection and good sound effects.
What I didn't like
That it’s not at a major venue in LA so more people can see it!
My overall impression
This could be the jumping off point to the heretofore unknowns: RJ DeBard and Andy Hoff.
While Keith Huff’s play is compelling, these two actors bring it to life.
