Dramatic Foolery
Foolish Reviews

Help! Help!

Chicago Tribune, 2000

“It‘s an ingenious setup that allows Richardson to indulge not only his luckless-clown shtick but also his skills as a magician and juggler.”

Philadelphia Inquirer, 1999

Richardson plays a vaudeville-show stagehand who, as the only theater person left not murdered, tries to go on with the performance all by himself. While taking on such roles as musician, magician and puppeteer, he comes to realize that he, too, is being stalked by the killer even as he performs.

It‘s a format that allows Richardson, who calls himself a dramatic fool, to do a lot of clowning around. A talented mime with an audience-winning stage presence, he is as expert at designing quietly humorous activity as he is at executing it. It's a fun show.”
