Go, go go! Do not miss this show! Benito Di Fonzo has a decidedly twisted view of existence which only serves to feed the madness of this quirky show – The Chronic Ills of Robert Zimmerman: AKA Bob Dylan (A Lie) - A Theatrical Talking Blues – playing at the Old Fitzroy. He is a writer and performer of diverse tastes and he doesn’t shrink from tasting all there is. This gives his talented director and ensemble of actors the opportunity to also taste the fruits of their own art with relish and delight. I enjoyed seeing a kaleidoscope of characters from my own past a singin’ and a dancin’ their celebrity heads off. Congratulations to Andrew Henry, Leonore Munro, and Matt Ralph as the Zimm. As for Lucinda Gleeson’s direction and Simon Rippingdale’s music, why be shackled? I agree. Go for it! That’s what theatre needs. And the metaphorical burning of the effigy? If you blinked you missed it, but then you would really be missing something. Well done to all.
