Very cleverly written. Sometimes the script would pass by so quickly that it would take some thought as to what happened! Liked the enthusiasm of the actors, who obviously are extremely talented to have memorized the script and presented it with such precision. This is a play which seeing it again would help the viewer catch up with the fast pace. Overall it was a great experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The play's shockingly optimistic tone is downright subversive when you consider its subject: what it means to be a success in America. How are the new legends made? Slightly unsound of mind and decidedly stout of heart." --Louisville Courier-Journal
- "There's exuberance and bounce in Nachtrieb's voice, and Bob evinces a loving, Ira Glass-y eye for off-kilter Americana." --Rob Kendt, American Theatre Magazine
Directed by Sean Daniels
It is said that Bob was born on Valentine’s Day in the bathroom of a White Castle Restaurant in Kentucky. It is said that Bob’s birth mother Helen had a particular loneliness on this holiday that only a certain greasy cuisine could soothe. Armed with nothing but unfailing optimism, Bob is the epic, fast-paced comedy of one man’s dream to be great. The greatness of Bob.
