What I liked

I loved how simple the set was and how fluid Bisschop utilized it. He moved in and out of the set with such ease that you believed he was at home in his element.

What I didn't like

Nothing.

My overall impression

Bisschop lights up the stage in this incredible solo show that proves to audiences that he is one of the best actors in Hollywood. Taking on the roles of Mike Royko and Studs Terkel, Mitchell digs deep and gives so much to his performance that you feel you are actually listening to these two journalism giants chronicle some of the most powerful moments in history. It’s amazing. The pacing is on point as he takes his audience on a journey they are not expecting, but so glad they attended. If you can see this show, DO IT!
