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.

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.

“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
The cast, under the direction of Nick Corley, is superb, and the play, for all that it is about the virtue of perseverance, the strength of friendship, and the value of having a worthy idol at a young age, is also very funny. All four actors [Matthew Lamb, Gordon Clapp, William Bednar, and Karl Kenzler] make for a splendid ensemble.

Lamb is all precocity. His exchanges with [Karl] Kenzler are sharp and often funny, as when the younger Ray rues in some way how the older Ray turned out. Lamb adds to the brightness [Gordon] Clapp establishes and is a good foil to the calmer, more subdued older Didinger.
