Review by DAVID LUCARELLI

What I liked

Phat Trane may be completely fake, but this play is the real deal. Perfectly captures the feeling of being a fly on the wall with an aging folk blues musician, learning pearls of hard won wisdom, laughing and crying all the way. Blind Willie McTell and John Lee Hooker are gone, but you can still have a life changing sit down with Phat Train!

What I didn't like

They should be selling a CD of these songs at the end of the show! I’d buy one.

My overall impression

SPOILER: This play is an Andy Kaufman like ruse of epic proportions, that almost completely fooled me and I’m not the only one! The theatricality of the attractive nurse wheeling him out was the only thing that caused me to raise an eyebrow. That said, this play is a must see! Funny, poignant, and inspiring with great music.
