“What a Game,” Father’s (Bill English) foray to the ballpark with his weirdly clairvoyant Little Boy, wonderfully played by the luminous Matthew Lamb, is a delightfully leveling episode in a show loaded with Americana."
-- Amy Kotkin, DC Theatre Arts
There are many standout performances in this show, but I was especially captivated by two. Tateh (Bobby Smith) brings a ferocity to his portrayal of the highs and lows of one immigrant experience, taking the audience on the emotional journey of finding a better life for his little girl through scrappy creativity and palpable devotion. The Little Boy (Matthew Lamb) often provides moments of levity, and Lamb’s comedic timing and professionalism shine through both on and off the stage.
-- Rebecca Cary, The Rodgers Revue
Matthew Lamb is a delight as the Little Boy, an upper-crust kid with a common touch and a weird clairvoyant inkling of impending war.
