Not bad, interesting, but really not for people under 50. This show is tailored more towards an older generation

Wonderful embodiment of the title character. Very conversational and real portrayal. I felt like I was in Ram Dass' living room. Nit: Could have been shorter by 15 minutes.

The more you remember the 60s, the more you'll enjoy this one man show about Ram Das, a.k.a. Richard Alpert. Funny, touching, and thought-provoking.

Wow, didn't know who Warren David Keith was before (though he did look familiar - probably from the film 'Big Lebowski'), but they weren't kidding in the description, he is a REALLY good actor! Knew next to nothing about Ram Dass when I went. Not...continued

The performance was terrific...the material was mostly available thru Ram Dass' writing and video. Not much new under the Hawaiian sun.

Mr. Warren IS Ram Dass. His performance is a masterpiece. Deeply joyful, loving and well-crafted script.

If you want a walk down memeory lane (if you're old enough to do that) then run to see this 1 man play. If you want some insights as to the iconic 60's psychodelic scene, then run to see this play. This was very well done, well acted,...continued

A beautifully written piece that comes alive in this one-person show. Good acting, skillful staging, a lot of humor and especial warmth as the actor welcomed late comers and opened a window in response to the frantic fanning of one over-heated...continued

Very fun show with a talented actor. He portrayed the many steps of the life journey of Dick Alpert/ Ram Dass in a way that was engaging, informative, and thought provoking.

As performance and channeling of Richard Alpert/Baba Ram Das, Warren David Keith was totally terrific. As someone who was there in the Sixties, however, I knew at least two people who were made ineffectual for the rest of their lives by LSD. I...continued

This was an enlightening and enthralling performance. The writing was superb by Lynn Kaufman and David Warren Keith was mesmerizing. Can't say enough about this highly entertaining and informative show. Really a must see.
