LONE STAR JAMES MCLURE PDF

Darryl Reilly, Critic. The play takes place on a Friday night at AM in its litter-strewn, backyard. Lone Star was first performed Off-Broadway with Mr. Wars in and ran for 69 performances. He rhapsodizes about his many sexual conquests that took place in his pink Thunderbird convertible. Fueled by alcohol, he is short-tempered, and the effect of serving in Vietnam has obviously taken a psychological toll on him.

Darryl Reilly, Critic. The play takes place on a Friday night at AM in its litter-strewn, backyard. Lone Star was first performed Off-Broadway with Mr. Wars in and ran for 69 performances. He rhapsodizes about his many sexual conquests that took place in his pink Thunderbird convertible. Fueled by alcohol, he is short-tempered, and the effect of serving in Vietnam has obviously taken a psychological toll on him.

A football injury made him ineligible to serve in Vietnam. Alternating between flavorfully humorous and darkly revealing dialogue, Mr. The charmingly low-key Chris Loupos winningly achieves the optimum balance of affability, mental slowness and compassion as Ray. Greg Pragel as Cletis eshews predictable superficiality by marvelously combining obvious geekiness with inner substantiveness. The animated Mr. Pragel manages to be simultaneously amusing and emotionally effective during his periodic outbursts.

Besides being an engaging vehicle for the trio of talented actors, this spirited production of Lone Star is also a welcome opportunity to experience and rediscover the work James McLure. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

Entertaining Mr. Lone Star This comedy about a doltish Vietnam veteran from rural Texas has not aged well—it comes off as stilted and sluggish.
