One of the most striking aspects of this production is the masterful performance of Robert Sean Leonard. It's hard to believe he's only in his twenties. Hamilton's poignant and touching story tells of a young man driven by his passion (but no talent) for a career in ballet and for a handsome dancer--both of which he can never have. Leonard's mastery is apparent as the listener becomes absorbed in Walter's story, as well as the lives of each of the other characters, for he reads them with equal emotion and truthfulness. Such a combination of beautiful text and a truly insightful performance is a rare find. R.A.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
