  1. A towering tour de force, Jim Loucks looms large from the shadowy stage, grabbing audience like his preacher pappy would. About as slick and professional as a Fringe show can aspire, this is a one towering thespian workout punctuated with nuanced sound bites and moody spotlighting. Everything clicks with exquisite precision.

    Recounting three generations of his family tree, Loucks inhabits his characters with slippery ease, delivering hard truths without judgement, life lessons and their consequences, the troubling aspects and deep rooted love of the male lineage.

    This is riveting performance of the highest order, yet somehow feels at odds with the usual loosey-goosey vibe of the Fringe. Is raising the bar a good thing? Perhaps.
