SEATTLE FRINGE FESTIVAL LOGO The 2002 Fringe Review Rag #7
The Day They Shot John Lennon
by James McLure
Repertory Actors Theatre

"As we approached the one-year anniversary of September 11th I have been aching for a return to New York. Call it homesickness, but what I miss most about the city is the energy its people create, even if itís only as a result of so many crowded into close quarters. This play, written by James McClure, is set on the winter day in 1980 when millions of different people were brought together by one tragic event. ReActís production rises above the scriptís dated references by pulling together the most culturally diverse cast I have ever seen in Seattle. The actorís are a bit hesitant in their deliveryómaybe they donít believe that this town is ready for the raw force that is New York. Particularly adept at capturing the force are actors, Jeffrey Wade Gilbert, Morris Hendrickson, and Diana Dotter. My thanks to the company for this glimpse of the New York I love." -Zoe Fitzgerald
