The script is well-crafted, and the narrative skillfully structured, if somewhat by the numbers.
The direction is handled with both intelligence and finesse, though there must be some other way of ending the show than having Booth lying on his back up stage looking at his hands. (Yes, I know it’s historically accurate, but it’s not theatrically sound.)
But what can’t be nitpicked is Stephen Spiegel’s performance of Booth, in which he captures both the charm and madness of the man with magnificent aplomb to easily carry away a GOLD MEDAL.
