It grew on me. In the end, he won me over. He displayed humor and emotion; the story was current/relevant.

Don't be put off by the photo (over-the-top expression, knife in apple) - this is a great performance / experience, and all the more powerful as it's autobiographical. ... continued

Great show! I am a teacher in South Central. He depicts it the way it is, with all the glory and horror of inner city teaching. No job on the face of the planet more... continued

Want to have all your memories of first-year middle school teaching validated? – the astonishing unexpected realties, the frustrations, the humor, the painful powerlessness, the soul-satisfying powerfulness? Go see They Call Me Mr.Fry.

Please go see this show! It is one of the best we have seen in quite a while. Funny, poignant, moving, professional and interesting. With just a little more polish it will be on Broadway.

I loved this show! Not only is it very well performed, written and directed but it moved me both to tears and laughter. I had heard this show was excellent but I didn't believe it until I saw it for myself. I could definitely see this again.

Laughter to tears to laughter again. "Jasmine's" Christmas book chokes me up thinking about a day later.

Fry takes you into his class with clear, precise characters that make you think as you anticipate their next move. Great acting and touching story.

This was my first experience seeing a one man show. I wasn't sure how one person could pull off multiple characters effectively. I was amazed at how well Jack... continued

We, as well as most of the audience, are educators. We enjoyed the show. Mr. Fry gets a little carried away at times, but he gets his points across in a humorous and sometimes poignant way.

Excellent one-man show comes alive! Mr. Fry impersonates his star pupils with a sense of humor and pathos. It is funny, heartwarming, and a valuable insight into the trials of our children and teachers east of downtown.
