KC Fringe "7 (x1) Samurai" review by Bombastico

Epic Kurosawa in 50 minutes! MUST SEE!
Rating: 5

7 (x1) Samurai
KC Fringe Festival

Whether you're a fan of Samurai movies or not, this is a MUST SEE performance by David Gaines. A master of movement and mime, Gaines takes us on an epic journey as he retells Akira Kurosawa's classic "Seven Samurai" with only 2 masks and his fertile imagination (and superb skill) on stage. (Fans of "The Magnificent Seven" will recognize the story, as the classic Western is a retelling of "Samurai," too). By turns, funny, poignant, touching and breathtaking, Gaines plays 20+ characters with barely a word, and does it with a clarity and precision that is impossible to beat. GO SEE THIS SHOW!
