One week down, 3 to go! Thank you to everyone who joined us last week for our first performances of Wait Until Dark. We’ve gotten a lot of great audiences and a lot of great feedback, including two glowing reviews from MD Theatre Guide and DC Metro Theater Arts:
“Of the three men, Adkins makes the most impact. He seems to be channeling his Alan Arkin (who played the role in the movie). He is witty, urbane, intelligent, and chillingly cold. He never deviates from his goal. Quinn and Chaney work very well together as two small-time con men way in over their heads. You almost feel sorry for them going up against Roat and then Susy.” – MD Theatre Guide
“Any good thriller needs a villain, and Harry Roat (Adam R. Adkins) is as villainous as they come. Roat is a smorgasbord of a character, being by turns charming, clever, humorous, devious, polite, calculating, and psychopathically homicidal. Roat wants to be the center of his universe, manipulating others at will, and Adkins makes him as gleefully evil as any Bond villain, down to some Snidely Whiplash-style chortles.” – DC Metro Theater Arts
I’m very proud of this show and the work myself and the rest of my cast and crew have done. Tickets are still on sale for our next 3 weeks of shows, but make sure to get your tickets soon because they’re moving fast! http://thelittletheatre.com/tickets/
Hello friends. First of all, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who made it out to Silver Spring for our One Act Festival last weekend. We had a fantastic turn out and some very energetic crowds. Always proud and happy to perform for my friends and family. To close out the great weekend, I’m happy to share some pictures and a review from the show. First of all, here’s a few pictures that were taken by the talented Harvey Levine:
You can check out the rest of the pictures from Six Seven Three Twenty and Alternate Theory, along with pictures from all of my other shows, here on my Photos page.
I’m also proud to share a nice write-up we got from DC Metro Theater Arts for our weekend. Here’s an excerpt:
“Adam Adkins plays Mike O’Sullivan, the assistant to it seems everyone and is probably the most likable character. Adkins hits the mark by straddling the fence between Gary and Doug and the Coach.”
Not a bad little nod. Feel free to read the full review here or view the rest of my press clippings here on my site. Also, the One Act Festival continues for the next two weekends. Not with me, sadly, but with many of my friends and fellow craftspeople. Please make sure to show your love and support by planning your trip to the festival here.
So that’s all for now, my dear friends. But make sure to come back and visit soon, as art never stops coming.
