First Class

"You become the students of the greatest teacher you never had in David Wagoner's one-man show based on fellow Northwest poet and legend Theodore Roethke. John Aylward (a veteran of the Seattle stage, as well as The West Wing and ER) gives a bravura performance as the famously gifted and famously hell-raising Roethke in this voyage into the passionate heart — and art — of a genius."

I read this play in Georgia Review a few months ago, and it was terrific. Looking forward to seeing the live performance.
