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.
See it if you appreciate the skill required to manipulate language to create mind-boggling poetry and prose, performed flawlesly and passionately.
Don't see it if you are not a fan of rap or of having to focus closely to absorb kaleidoscopic thoughts and ideas that are a linguistic treasure chest.
See it if You like a one-person show, poetry, and/or a different perspective.
Don't see it if You need to be fully engaged throughout the entire show, like something polished, or get distracted easily.
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.
See it if you want to see a high energy performance.
Don't see it if you are turned off by trite platitudes and cultural appropriations in the guise of liberal (rhymed) preaching.
See it if You can spare 80 minutes for a brilliant and thought provoking one person piece by a very gifted writer/actor.
Don't see it if You want to be entertained with fluff. If you are unwilling to focus on substantive thought, humorously delivered, that might hit home.
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.
See it if RJ Bartholomew gave magnificent performance . Leaving the audience think of about the meaning of life and they measurement of life's journey
Don't see it if Play is fast past willing to think out of the box to get the message of the play. Be open minded about the meaning of life
See it if you'd like a spoken "We Didn't Start the Fire". Almost all in rhyming poems that are monotonous or angry.
Don't see it if you don't want to be told everything is bad. No plot, just a man telling you what he thinks in sometimes over-long "poems."
