Mostel is remembered for his comedic genius and his definitive roles, but in the 1950's he was equally known for his place on the infamous Hollywood blacklist. Mostel's swagger, ferocity, intelligence and fantastic wit is brought back to the stage in this volcanic tour-de-force.

I just finished reading this play and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is funny in places and serious in others. I could just picture Mostel as he spoke of some major moments in his life. I only wish I could have seen Brochu's performance.

If you want a good read, I recommend this play. A one-person play has its own set of challenges; but if you are looking for one to do I think this would be an excellent and entertaining choice.
