Press qoutes from THE LAST CASTRATO
The Last Castrato: Hits High Notes
By Michael Dale/ August 24, 2005
...what I wouldn't change is the casting of Jeff Swearingen, whose exuberant energy and nice-guy likability is a treat to watch. Performing with no set -- just a folding chair, two tables, minimal props and nothing behind him but a black curtain -- director Brad McEntire puts him through a cardio workout with physically demanding staging full of pratfalls and human sound effects. His fun performance of an enjoyable... script makes The Last Castrato hit some pleasant high notes.

There's some outrageously funny stuff here.... Swearingen really gets into it, too... Audacious, indeed.
