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.

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.

The play was difficult to follow. I went with 4 others and we all felt that we had trouble following the narrative line. We all had different interpretations, none of which were correct. This is a slow play.

Man, can that man dance and act and break your heart and raise your spirits about the ephemeral experience of mortality.

I have always embraced every character that David Strathairn has played. This is a once in a lifetime, must see performance.

Excellent performance by David Strathairn, but the play itself was not exciting and gripping as advertised. The comparison to The Da Vinci Code seems especially misplaced. In contrast, the Pianist of Willesden Lane at Berkeley Rep is much more...continued

David S. was good. Basically it's a one-man show. But the play itself -- what a bore!!!!!!!! Dumb lines, boring "plot." Ach! But David S. -- yes, he's a good actor. Go at your own risk.

David Strathairn is a wonderful actor and the staging at ACT is excellent. But the plot is meaningless. I felt like I was in a beginning philosophy class being told how insignificant our lives are in the context of the big universe. I learned...continued

The acting was good and as far as one man shows go, this was one of the better ones. But I did not care for the story of a wandering Jew or the main character and found myself bored soon after the show started.

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.

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
