Stage Buddy
September 15th, 2016

"So much of the plot is left, brilliantly, to the imagination...Thanks to spot-on casting and solid acting, one feels like real-life comics are onstage...Bennet would do his actors a favor by remaining a bit strict with pacing and caution towards energy-deflating physicality...Perhaps in future stages of this play, one may have the chance to spend more time with this elusive character, Seymour. Such artists as he is based on deserve an even deeper appreciation."
