This one-man show is absolutely amazing! The performer is a credentialed teacher in California, taking time off from teaching for a while to do this show. He's changed the names, but the events in the story are all true, unbelievable as some of them sound. Mr. Fry takes on the roles of himself, a couple of his most memorable students, his principal, a student's father, and a few other characters. The dialog is in turn comical, angry, sad, and poignant. I was riveted throughout. If this man teaches his fifth graders with the same level of energy and charisma that he has on stage, his kids are truly blessed. As a retired teacher myself, I had a special connection to this story. But anybody with kids of their own, anybody who works with kids, anybody who loves kids, will love this show. Go see it before it closes.
