Theatre in the Round, April 2014
Dead Man’s Cell Phone is fantastical and a bit absurd, but speaks to real-world issues of love, loss, and human connection.
The line between ‘quirky and endearing’ and ‘implausible and annoying’ is often fine, but Leeman’s portrayal and Jamil Jude’s direction keep things in pleasantly amusing territory
It’s always fun to see theater in Theatre in the Round because it is quite literally in the round. The audience surrounds the stage on all sides, providing many different perspectives of the show, which can be a challenge in staging. But in this show I never felt like I was at the wrong angle.
