What I liked

My favorite line, and I may be slightly paraphrasing here, was about how all societies, regardless if they are Christian or not, already have laws against killing because, “the vast majority of people tend to be against being murdered!”

What I didn't like

The theater was a bit stuffy, but the one hour show flew by anyway!

My overall impression

A captivating one man show by an actor who completely embodies a fascinating near forgotten historical figure, who was about a century and half ahead of his time in terms of his views of race, sex and religion. Full of witty and profound insights that are just as relevant today as they were when they were originally uttered.
