"More than a decade after he first performed the piece, and once again directed by Cummings, Greenspan remains a force of nature. Until he climbs off of the stage after eighty breathless minutes, he seems to be in perpetual motion. While 21st-century audiences might disagree with Atkinson's references to the play's "intelligently artistic weight," Greenspan makes a strong case for its "amusing" qualities and power to entertain. The Patsy, at least in the current iteration, is worth rediscovering again."
"So, here’s Greenspan in his latest enthusiastic venture, reprising—for The Transport Group—his one-man stint as the six-member cast of the Barry Connors’ 1925 Great White Way click, The Patsy. Is he every bit as good in this adaptation as he was at the Duke in 2011? Is he even better? What’s certainly true is that his joy at being onstage is unabated."
Greenspan is a genius in The Patsy, and direction by Jack Cummings II, co-founder and artistic director of Transport Group, is exquisite; the build up of the story as it unfolds at Greenspan’s hand could not have been better shaped, and he keeps this three-act play going at a record pace.
"This revival of the revival has the same cast, David Greenspan, who continues to play all eight roles with a zaniness off the scales. His The Patsy is a one-man farce filled with head-spinning energy and a sack full of comic turns. With fine direction by Transport Group Artistic Director, Jack Cummings III, Greenspan literally bounces around the box of a set for a virtuosic, whirlwind 80 minutes."
