A Song of Bucephalus

 

Review


A Song of Bucephalus is a new play written by two of its central cast members, Jeremy Park and James Odin Wade. It tells the story of the stage adaptation of noble Bucephalus, herein remembered as the mighty horse that Alexander the Great rode through his conquest of the world. This could very well be the most interesting and appropriate use of the classic two-man horse costume yet put to stage. There are also communists. It’s witty, self-aware, and every performer has near perfect comedic timing. This show has been a highlight of the fringe thus far. You might be used to the occasional creepy chortle from different odd parts of the audience, but this play got big and consistent laughs. It's fine for kids, it's good for dates—heck, you'll enjoy no matter who you're with. It’s well conceived, well executed, and the next time you see Park and Wade’s names on a marquee, you should pop in. Reviewed by Lucas Provencher.
