My overall impression
I rearranged my schedule and came to see Red Bastard without the slightest idea what to expect, based solely on the recommendation of Sound & Fury’s Richard Maritzer. I was not prepared for the awesomeness of this show.
From the moment Eric Davis (Cirque du Soleil’s Iris)stepped onto the stage in the most outlandish costume imaginable, his presence filled the theater with power. Davis exudes strength, knowledge and the overwhelming desire to help his audience by challenging their beliefs.
This is NOT a comedy piece, although it is hilarious, funny and in-your-face. What it IS is an exercise in self-analysis and introspection. If you are honest, with yourself and with others, you cannot help but be transformed by the performance.
Although words fail to justify the spectacle that is Red Bastard, suffice it to say that this is a life-changing event that needs to be personally experienced.
Although Eric is taking a much deserved rest from the Bastard, if and when he returns, I strongly recommend you make all effort to attend. That is, of course, unless you’re totally satisfied with your life’s course and don’t need any changes. However, if you’re like most of us, this show may be just the spark you need to jump-start your dreams and aspirations.
