Went back to the Kirk Douglas Theater this afternoon to see the third of four one-person shows featured in their "Solomania!"
Today's show was Pacifica Radio Network reporter Jerry Quickley in "Live From The Front," which recounts his reporting from Baghdad as the American bombing began. His perspective is very much against the war, but it seemed fitting to see Memorial Day Weekend.
His presentation isn't very theatrical (though he does do a few different accents) but it's really more like listening to a friend telling some pretty amazing tales from a recent business trip. The problem is, at 105 minutes, it's pretty hard to listen to just about anyone go on and on for that long.
