About the show

In this solo drama, Richard Hoehler plays RJ Bartholomew, a man who loses everything and then rises from the ashes to become the man he was always meant to be. More…

RJ Bartholomew is the Everyman with answers for those questioning Everything. After falling from grace with an agnostic thud, Bartholomew delivers a powerful message with a genuine hope for the future, faith in the universe, and an undying love for mankind. 'I of the Storm' is a riches-to-rags success story revealing that what you seem to lose is always less valuable than what is returned to you by letting go.

Great acting, Slow, Intense, Indulgent, Excruciating

See it if you’re interested in great acting spoiled by a sermon- filled script written by a Dr. Seuss wannabe on speed.

Don't see it if You’re prepared to sit with hands over your ears, to avoid the rat-at-tat of dialogue that is filled with low-level platitudes.

Confusing, Disappointing, Dizzying, Excruciating, Slow

See it if One man show, with a philosophical theme, political ideology is what you seek. Relavent timing today.

Don't see it if A dizzying, often confusing, indulgent boring show on the shoulders of one man. Too much material for 90 minute show. Decent acting.

24
Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You want to be bored to death listening to a man recite a Dr. Suess like poem about his life. Unfortunately it gets annoying after awhile.

Don't see it if You have good taste in theatre.

“A remarkable one-man show has returned to NYC for a limited run, but there is nothing limited about it–not its reach, not its timeliness, not the depth to which it touches us…An 80-minute tour de force…sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always riveting and poignant…Out of fragments–movie lines,...

"Playwright R.K. Bartholomew’s tirade lurches from intriguing to irritating to boring with only passages about the protagonist’s lovely, unexpected relationship to buoy it. Were it perhaps an hour, half revelation, half friendship, it might have held our attention...Hoehler’s focus is consummate,...
