I'm blown away. I saw this show in Hollywood just two weeks ago and it has grown even more since then. There was a full house tonight hanging on every word Mr. Ruskin said, some moved to tears at the end. The full house gave him a spontaneous long standing ovation. And after there was a beautiful catered opening night reception with food and wine! A masterful performance going to London in two weeks, I heard.
I want to see it again!

“Theatergoers are enriched by Ruskin’s reminder and portrayal of the man who put pen to paper and wrote The Age of Reason, and strove mightily to put theory into practice, across two continents.” —LA Progressive
“Ruskin’s Paine provides more than a mere history lesson; it’s a sort of performance art. Not only do we learn of a largely untold slice of the American story, we also get to see an actor in top form. So nuanced and layered is Ruskin’s performance, and so enlightening is his script, it’s as if Paine has been brought to back life just to speak to us.” — Showmag.com
“Certainly Ruskin, whose versatility, innate affability and easy delivery lands directly between middle-period Geoffrey Rush and the late Roger Livesey, conveys the truth as he sees it, …” —Los Angeles Times
