See it if If you like Christopher lloyd. He stands well out in this cast. If you like the poet Ezra Pound.
Don't see it if If you dont like the subject matter or Pound. Biased and cursing throughout.
See it if Facing treason charges, the bigoted poet is apprehensive to leave hospital; relies on Jewish therapist to save him from himself. Fine cast.
Don't see it if No poetry. Racial slurs. At both performances, the great Lloyd(that voice!) was on book, throwing off the cast, the rhythm, and missing cues
“Christopher Lloyd does not disappoint: his presence is arresting, and his masterful yet effortless use of language brings to life Pound’s bullheaded stubbornness and raging passion...Abbruzzese’s performance as the psychiatrist is just as captivating...Unfortunately, without Lloyd and Abbruzzese’s talents, O’Leary’s play comes up a bit short. I had a hard time investing in the story because I didn’t care enough about the characters’ objectives.”
"'Pound' is dismissive, jocular, arrogant, and entertaining by turns. He has made a world for himself out of his hospital confines...The heart of the play is in the conversations that take place between the young psychiatrist and her renowned patient...These conversations bring up age-old debates going back to the salons of the renaissance designed around the importance of art that then ask what is more important than art...The acting is excellent throughout."
