Freakshow-themed one-man show lacks pay-off
This article is from 2011.
Surrounded by the paraphernalia of the freakshow, Robert Ingham (Lewis Davidson) reminisces on his life as an oddity and the world behind the velvet curtain. Switching between biography and sideshow acts, Davidson’s one-man show plays out like the pitch of a long-winded Coney Island barker, with the only levity coming from a brief trapeze interlude. There’s an awful lot of build up for very little pay-off.
