Thespian Thoughts Theatre Review – Off the King’s Road

Theatre Review by SANDRO MONETTI – Thespian Thoughts Theatre Review – “Off the King’s Road” at the Odyssey Theatre
“Funny, poignant and profound”

Off the King's Road_3

Lonely and retired American businessman Matt Browne has packed all he will need for a solo vacation in London…a good book, a bag of clothes and a blow up doll.

It’s when that last item makes an appearance that this funny, poignant and profound play kicks into gear and you’re never sure what’s coming next.

Before act one is over, Matt (played by Tom Bower) has encountered an East European prostitute, an eccentric cat lady and an obsequious concierge at the boutique hotel where he is staying.

You’ll have no idea where this story of self discovery is going next but that’s part of the fun of a most engaging and interesting first full length play by Neil Koenigsberg.

The playwright has an interesting back story himself having been a leading publicist, producer and manager in Hollywood and he pulled in accomplished actress Amy Madigan, a former client, to direct the play. She does a terrific job, especially in drawing good
performances from every member of her cast and creating a most authentic sense of place.
