I really didn't care for this show. It started out okay, but I found myself bored within half-hour. It's really hard for one man to do a 90 minute show and keep things interesting.

One man shows are tought. But David S. kept me on the edge of my chair the entire time. What a fantastic exploration of life, meaning, and purpose.

Impressive one-man performance by wonderful David Strathairn. In what at first seemed a very long shaggy dog story the one-act event turned into a profound reflection of the human condition. With beautifully timed comic bits all along the way,...continued

The accommodations and theater were outstanding. The plot should have been fascinating, but unfortunately proved to be very un-entertaining. It pains me to say so, as I was really looking forward to the story. Too much narration and not enough...continued

I'd give it 3 and a half stars because the script was weak towards the end but David Straightharn (sp?) was excellent, so perfectly in character from his first step on stage that I never thought of him being an actor, just a Dutch librarian. The...continued

David Straithorn is a consummate actor, and I think the production was a good one. For me, the play itself repeatedly strained credulity and did not hold my interest.

Tiresome. Went nowhere. I totally missed the point and so did the other three people I went with.

The Actor was great to watch but the story itself was boring.

Best One Man Show I have seen in a long while. Very funny and entertaining experience. The time flew by on this deep and well done performance.

Seats were in the nose bleed section despite red velvet so sometimes it was a bit difficult to hear. Acting was great. Story was fun and playful. Set was clever.

First off, I would have gone to a showing of David Strathairn reading the phonebook. Mr. Straitharn did not dissuade me from any future phone book readings, should one be scheduled. The play itself was quite, quite good, though the ending delved...continued

It was a great joy to spend the evening with this actor and his character. The piece itself, while pleasant, was a bit predictable and not terrifically visceral.

Great performance and an interesting story. I found the story to be slightly slow but David's performance kept me memorized. See this for one great performance. Everyone else is my group loved it.

I attended a Wednesday matinee performance and loved this production. A delightful story, I found it charming and, perhaps a bit sad. It was a joy to see David Strathairn in this performance as the Dutch librarian. Standing ovation!
