Both plays were fantastic, but "Beowulf" was out of this world. Bryan Burroughs' performance was extraordinary.

Beowulf is an extraordinary theatrical experience. Brilliantly
written, ouststanding performance. Unique combination of heartbreak, humor, despair, and hope.
Swing is delightful; don't miss these two wonderful pieces!

Quotes & Highlights

“[The plays] are both very worth the trip … when the rumpled Joe and the tentative May find their groove rocking to an old R&B number, you want to join them on the floor … [Burroughs] juggles an abundance of ideas — so many, in one hour, that Beowulf nears epic dimensions itself.” —The New York Times (Critics’ Pick)
