There’s a new guy in town…
That would be actor Victor Rader-Wexler who appears now through Sunday in The Seafarer at the Unicorn Theatre, 3828 Main in Kansas City. Rader-Wexler recently moved here with his two teenage girls.
You may recognize him and his gloriously ironic “Voice of God” pipes from multiple roles on Seinfeld, As well as in Minority Report, the 2002 Steven Spielberg movie that starred Tom Cruise.
This play is so good, there’s but a single seat left for Saturday night. However there are seats for both Sunday shows at at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m..
So don’t miss it!
Rader-Wexler plays a mysterious stranger who drops in on Christmas Eve at a poker party with four Irish guys. This cast, which includes David Fritts, Stuart Rider and Dean Vivion along with Allan L. Boardman as Richard, in the role that won a Tony for the actor who played the part of the blind brother.
These seasoned actors have 65 combined years of acting between them, And it shows; it’s a pleasure to watch them. Directed by Mark Robbins, The Seafarer is a first class effort fresh from Broadway. It’s by noted Irish playwright Conor McPherson (leave it to the Irish to manage alcoholism as if it were a mild case of psoriasis – just something one ignores).
Once again Unicorn producer Cynthia Levin – like Sacajawea – has scouted another of the best plays to bring back to Kansas City.
So forget the airfare, the cab rides, the hotel bill and the pricy restaurants— just go see The Seafarer.
There’s even a surprise ending I bet none of you will see coming.
But hurry – It’s so worth it. And it’s not even about gays!
