I'm not a huge fan of absurd theater. That said, I thought this was really well done. I have seen Rhinoceros before and read the script, and I got much more from this performance.

Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
