Audience: Christine DiTillio
Very captivating show. Thought provoking, intense, powerful and poignant.
In DEATH UNIT, G. Smokey Campbell’s never-give-up intensity keeps Robert DiTillio on edge from the first moment all the way past the last. These two have very good chemistry and an ease with each other while working with very serious issues. They even manage to find some humor within a subject that is far from funny. The second piece, LOST VOICES, was beautifully and poignantly played by three strong actresses. Moving and riveting. The “interrogator” was also very impressive with her razor sharp focus on her non-prisoners. Writing, acting and directing in both pieces intersected to make this a very solid theater experience.
A sweet, poignant and spot on portrayal of a Hollywood icon. Kelly Mullis channels Marylin Monroe in an hour long journey that captivated me from the very first moment. Kelly is immediately likable. You believe her as Marylin without question. She kept the pace up and delivered a huge amount of information with humor and compassion. By the end I was choking back tears over Marylin's demise while simultaneously applauding Kelly's flawless performance. Sprinkled with actor's voice overs of significant people in her life as their pictures flashed on the screen added to the feeling of the stage being filled with characters. Plus several renditions of songs sung beautifully by Marylin/Kelly. It's the whole package. Bravo. In my opinion, one of the best shows at the fringe!
