The reviews are in for Larry (Deadwood) Cedar's performance in "Billy Bishop Goes To War", at the Colony Theatre.....
BACKSTAGE WEST raves: "Larry Cedar's tour-de-force gallery of characterizations is artful and astonishing....riveting as a spirited song-and-dance man, a versatile comedic actor, a tragic hero, and a whole lot more during his dazzling transformations, acing the physical, intellectual, and technical challenges. When he launches into a beautiful poem paying tribute to another iconic war hero, Albert Ball, the melancholy underlying the show's abundant humor bursts forth to profound effect"
The DAILY NEWS says: "...Cedar shows off the broad range of his technique. He's got a modest, Midwestern affability that recalls the young Fred Astaire. And he's got chops. Give him a lorgnette and he's a British dowager, a boa and he's a Parisian chanteuse.
From LA WEEKLY: "Cedar offers a meticulous distinctiveness to his characters."
and the LOS ANGELES TIMES: "Larry Cedar's engaging narration in the title role vividly sweeps us up in Billy's wartime exploits, at the same time poignantly framing the conflicted morality they embody."
