Have you noticed how many theatre professionals think they have such compelling stories to tell? Heck, you just need to attend any Fringe Festival to bear witness to the ubiquitous auto-biographical one-person show. Rarely though are they as fascinating to the rest of us.
Fortunately for John Hirsch, his story comes courtesy of two other theatre professionals who while having some personal connection to the mank have been able to distill his life without the ego that normally gets in the way of these types of shows. And while it at times suffers under the weight of a complex life, Hirsch is buoyed by Alon Nashman’s riveting performance.
