Totally charming little theater and a great show. The actor who played RFK was awesome and the video backup really tied everything together. Brought back lots of memories from that time. I will probably see this again.

RFK is a triumph… the whole extraordinary enterprise is brought to life by one actor only… played with impressive panache by Russ Widdall… Don’t miss this one. — DC Metro Theatre Arts

“Regardless of your politics, party affiliation, or age, you should appreciate the extraordinary quality of Widdall’s acting… what a performance!” — Stage Magazine
