Review: THE OUTSIDER at Keegan Theatre Photo Review: THE OUTSIDER at Keegan Theatre
by David Friscic - Aug 30, 2022

The Outsider by Paul Slade Smith, now playing at the Keegan Theatre, is a skewering send-up of all the shenanigans that polls, pollsters, and the media are involved in.  Laughs aplenty ensue as a governor must resign and a decidedly “outsider” type of candidate, Ned Newley (played by a perfectly cast Zach Brewster-Geisz), is thrust into the spotlight without any of the political and media-savvy intuition that politicos believe are so necessary to appeal to the voters.  Soon the tables are turned, and the outsider becomes the darling of the media due to his unerring honesty and complete lack of guile.

'We're thrilled to have Ray back at Keegan, this time in the director's seat,' says Susan Marie Rhea, Keegan's artistic director and Ficca's co-star in SIX DEGREES. 'He brings a deep familiarity with this piece and its playwright, a natural sense of the rhythm and energy that farce requires, and an approach to directing that perfectly suits Keegan's aesthetic and collaborative culture. We're eager for UNNECESSARY FARCE to open, so that we can delight and uplift our Keegan audiences during this cold and often dreary season!'
