TotE's Fifth Season Continues!
"What a great idea... dusting off Conor McPherson's St. Nicholas. ... As funny and poignant as when it first came to New York... St. Nicholas is charismatically acted by Darrell James, as directed by Jesse Edward Rosbrow" --Kate Kennon, Examiner.com
Darrell James brings the cynical critic (surely this is not a redundancy) to vivid life, showing a strong affinity for the cadences (both the comedic and the eerie) of McPherson's language. A play well served by an intimate space like the WorkShop, director Jesse Edward Rosbrow trusts the simple elements of the play—just the strange narrator, a chair, and the audience. Yet, with the help of the subtly evocative lighting (designed by Ryan Metzler), James completely draws the audience into to this tale of worldly humiliation and supernatural mystery." --Joe Bendel, J.B. Spins
"Mr. James's pitch perfect Irish brogue and barrel-chested, tweed clad presence captivate the audience as he weaves a hypnotic charm. ...[His] mortal soul is saved by the stage. If you're lucky, seeing this production might do the same for you!" --Will Kenton, Cultural Capitol
