from the spirited performance of Nate Dendy, as Borkin, where the bulk of the
humor in the production came.
Dendy’s Borkin was a Falstaff of the first order, bellowing and drinking,
drinking and bellowing and always with a scheme up his sleeve, from his first
moments on stage to his final, ridiculous attempt at challenging Jordan
Kaplan’s Dr. Lvov to a duel. Dendy’s manic, comic performance called to mind a
young Danny Kaye.Other stand outs from the
cast included Kaplan’s stalwart and yes, honest, Doctor Lvov; Brittanie Bond’s
spitfire Sasha and Kyle Schaefer’s hysterical turn as the gloriously clueless
card player Kossih.
The Hunger and Thirst Theatre Collective is a company to keep an eye on.
