Beaty is a good performer, but the writing is weak. The characters show no progression resulting in show in which one loses interest half way through because there is nothing new or unexpected.

What a fantastic performance by Daniel Beaty. Transitioning from one character to the next was seamless. I was taken in throughout the performance. Can't wait for his next piece.

Daniel Beaty is a joy to watch. The script needs some minor work, some segments go on too long. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes of theatre.
