REVIEWS

 

"...a vial personality and an agile acting style...his skill at switching seamlessly from an imigrant's Yiddish accent to a New York drawl to the staccato style of a stand-up comic --- and his disarming engaging presence...keeps its audience on that thin line between tears and laughter.

"...a script that valances...its shrewdly mixed ingredients of pathos, wit and plain home truth make "A Map and a Cap..." a serio-comic monologue will worth attending.
