Red Bastard- Review

Carol Sinclair

This is not a typical show, and a typical review would not do it justice.

Any attempt to explain would take away the element of surprise and you will have a much fuller experience if you can enter with a clean slate and go off your own instincts instead of preconceived notions of what may be expected of you.  But be aware, there are expectations of you.  I think this just comes from a place of respect and admiration from one artist to another.  Within one hour I don’t think I have ever had so many conflicting ideas turning inside me.  I hoped I would be chosen as one of the many audience members he addresses, at the same time terrified I would be noticed and called upon.  I felt completely inadequate as an artist, but so inspired to continue to create and work towards something that one day might be up to par with what I experienced.  This is the kind of show that I am grateful to have been a part of and cannot stress enough that anyone who is willing to turn themselves over to the Red Bastard’s master class needs to be a part of this.   Whether you are an artist or not, this is an invaluable life experience, not just a theatrical one that you will regret letting pass you by.

 

If you do intend to see this production, get your ticket early as the show has been selling out.
