The Last Cowboy

SHOW TITLE: The Last Black Cowboy
RUNNING TIME: 45 m
VENUE: Linhart Theatre at 440 Studios
GENRE: Spoken Word/Poetry
AIR CONDITIONED: No
INTERMISSION: No

RATING: 2

RATING SCALE:
0 Run, don’t walk away from this disaster
1 Proceed with caution
2 Mild summer fare
3 More than just hype
4 Don’t miss this one its FRINGE-tastic!

COMMENTS:

The play tries hard to capture the attention of the audience and does succeed in spurts. The performance by the lead actor may be described in a similar fashion. The subject matter is relentlessly serious but not gripping enough. The material/performances don’t really move you.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

Perhaps with a little more re-working of the play and a different performer it might have a chance.
