Liars & Believers presents its epic take on the biblical story of King Saul. Featuring live music, clowning, physical theater, and swordplay. More…
Violence and betrayal, angels and prophets, villains and kings…and chickens. Who rises to rule and how far will he fall in the great clown kingdom? This production swings from absurd buffoonery to high tragedy, with kinetic physicality, silliness, swords, and live synthwave music. 'Who Would Be King' tells the story of a good man given an impossible task and asks: what separates good from great, and what lies in between?
See it if Even if it's free, your time is worth more than sitting through this childish show. Lighting is its only saving grace.
Don't see it if you like theater. This amateur show should have folded in Boston.
See it if You enjoy silly reimaginations of classic stories responding to the current political climate. You enjoy clowning a la Big Comfy Couch.
Don't see it if You like your shows very polished.
See it if you are 10 years old. A young audience member was thrilled every time a cuss was uttered.
Don't see it if you have anything better to do.
See it if Big fan of the face & zaniness conveying a story as am I, this is for you, also has lots of action for actions sake it seems
Don't see it if Too little story disappoints you, it also seemed rather pointless and cliched
See it if You enjoy off-the-wall zany humor or are intrigued by the idea of putting a twist on Biblical stories. You like physical theatre/clowning.
Don't see it if You have little patience for clown theatre, especially if it could use a lot more polish.
See it if you like old stories made new, that resonate and shed light on today's issues.
Don't see it if you like elaborate sets, or are afraid of swords.
See it if you are interested in plays about the Bible, and open to poking fun at biblical stories. Also if you're interested in silly humor.
Don't see it if you are opposed to biblical stories, experimental theater, or if you're expecting a musical. It's more of a play with live music throughout.
See it if You want to experience a unique show w/ actors who change quickly from quirky jokesters into complex characters with a historical past
Don't see it if You don't like small production shows where the audience is acknowledged by the actors or if your easily confused by quick character changes
See it if You want to see a show that is poorly written and directed even more poorly acted and sung. The set is ridiculous and the lighting is joke.
Don't see it if You have anything else to do with your time. I'm sorry this is the worst thing I've ever seen. I can't recommend it under any circumstances.
See it if You really enjoy physical theatre. It's a good show with solid writing that tells its story well.
Don't see it if You're interested in spectacle or pure naturalism. It's a show with combat, clowning and physical comedy, but with a very true heart.
