I saw this show last year and will be going again this next week. Curt Holman picked it as The #1 Play of 2003 and even Wendell Brock loved it - I am so excited to get to see it again. What a gift from this young theatre company. They are doing it right. So YES i have not seen it again yet, but I will write again next week after I see it.

I just wrote a review, but it went away, so I will write it again.

I just wanted to say that I agree with the previous review - this show is fantastic. This was the first show I have seen at this theatre company, and the theatre is a little difficult to get to (located in NW Atlanta) but is is more than worth it. What a great script and a great performance. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

It's rare that I actually take the time to write a review, but I was so moved by this show and the performace of the actor, Steve Coulter, that I had to take a moment.

I had read about this show last year, but missed it. So I was very excited to hear Actors Theatre of Atlanta was bringing the show back this year.

I can only describe this show as a roller coaster for adults. Coulter's performance as a Dutch librarian in search of a person who has deposited a book over 113 years over-due into his library's night deposit slot is stunning and something anyone who loves theatre must see. That basic description does not giv any clue of the adventure we take with Coulter - it is a comment on life on so many levels and it is always amazingly engaging and entertaining.

I can say without any reservations that this is one of the best plays I have ever seen - I urge you to catch it this month. I saw I AM MY OWN WIFE in NY a few months ago (both are 1 man shows) and I must say, this show is on par with that one. I can't put into words how wonderful this show is -

So that is my two cents - SEE IT! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
