DAGMAR STANSOVA certified reviewer June 28, 2019
This was the most brilliant piece of theatre I have seen in decades! It's what I imagined theatre was in ancient times: a ritual that literally transforms the audience. I could write long enthusiastic paragraphs about Sam Wright's masterful writing skills, his wide ranged acting abilities, the razor sharp intelligence exuding from his gazelle like body but I would be missing the mark. What makes this show a "must see"... no... more than a "must see"... a "must experience" a once in a life time "must experience" is that it is a pure transmission of a man's soul through the open channel of this formidable artist who goes by the name of Sam Wright. I am a better person for having witnessed his performance. ... full review

Riveting first-person account of this Lakota leader's struggle to save his people and preserve their way of life. The entire show is beautifully written, staged and performed. Arrive early and sit in silence while the pre-show soundtrack sets the mood and prepares you for a Vision Quest. Highly recommended. Don't miss it.... full review

The intimate space and atmosphere suited this story well as it delved into the history of the elusive figure Crazy Horse and this country's past. Told in a dreamlike state as well as prophetic, the writing soothed and progressed at a pace that felt like a trance. The acting and accents were spot on and I enjoyed the energy, vitality and truth the actor brought. There were moments so well acted and where you were so drawn in that you forgot this was a one man show. Hats off to this production.... full review

What one person shows should be and so rarely are, an intimate telling of the last free days of the Lakota. Marvelous performance with nuanced characters make the story vivid and relevant to our present political climate.... full review
