Review

Alissa Smith, Colorado Springs Independent:

Matt Radcliffe absolutely shines as Prior, conveying his humor in the face of his illness, his mounting religious terror, and the exhaustion that comes from fighting something he can’t actually fight. Radcliffe throws himself into every emotional cue, whether suffering terrifying prophetic visions or asking quietly over the phone for his friend to sing to him. It’s the strongest performance I have ever seen from him, hands down.

Springs on Stage:

Matt Radcliffe embarks on an emotional decathlon, as Prior goes from crippling self-pity to righteous fury, armed with a kiss-off instead of a sword. Even as his body crumples beneath him, the mission—or martyrdom—galvanizes his spirit. Radcliffe seizes every scene like it may be his last.
