From the moment actor-playwright David Arrow takes the stage, it’s clear he is not merely portraying Robert F. Kennedy, he is Bobby Kennedy. The actor bears a stunning physical resemblance to the late U.S. Attorney General and senator and has managed to master his mannerisms in most convincing fashion.
Although the cast is uniformly top drawer, it’s David Arrow’s sweet, astoundingly detailed depiction of Turing that makes Jewel’s play zing. Arrow has a whole array of tics and gestures that make his Turing warmly human. His stutter sounds authentic, his gentleness, genuine, his nail-biting, gross, and his unique way of flitting around the set, quite captivating.
