BWW Review: Part of Brits Off Broadway, THE TAILOR OF INVERNESS Is an Undeniable Wave of Passion
Now playing as a part of Brits Off Broadway at 59E59, Matthew Zajac's THE TAILOR OF INVERNESS is a must for history buffs and Anglo-files alike. In this one-man telling of life as a young man in Nazi Europe, Zajac takes us on the journey of his father's life, only accompanied by a singular violinist upstage left. It's a intimate evening of storytelling, littered with creative storytelling techniques.
Wading the balance between a traditional storytelling setting and the grit of reliving past events, Zajac captivates the audience with his quickness and capability to jump back and forth in time in his search for identity in the war-torn 20th century. Zajac utilizes projections and the few things from the tailor shop into effective and gripping imagery for the viewer- various pieces to represent the people in his past- even the clothes rack to simulate a train. Zajac is truly a visionary.
THE TAILOR OF INVERNESS begins performances on Tuesday, April 14 for a limited engagement through Sunday, May 3. The performance schedule is Tuesday - Thursday at 7:30 PM; Friday at 8:30 PM; Saturday at 2:30 PM & 8:30 PM; and Sunday at 3:30 PM. Tickets are $25 ($17.50 for 59E59 Members).
