Theatre Unleashed and Writer/Director Aaron Kozak set the bar high when it comes to what to expect at this years Hollywood Fringe Festival. The acting, costuming, and scenery (not to mention the brilliantly crafted script) take us back to a “simpler time” and work nearly flawlessly together.
Drew Farmer, Caleb Mills Stewart, Joey Miller, and Rachel Kerbs lead a horrendously talented cast that deserve a never ending standing ovation for their commitment to their characters and extremely challenging material. This cast doesn’t act like they’re in an 1800s western – they ARE in an 1800s western – and you best not tell them any differently.
I was a little confused by the selection of Modern Western music for a show that takes place in the 1800s, and at times the accents were a bit hard to follow… but those two things aside – this show is great, and it should not be missed!
Fair Warning – this show runs about two and a half hours…. but it’s well worth it.
