Jeff Daniels Tour de Force
21 May 2019 | by gretchengradSee all my reviews

Taut writing and standout performances make "Guest Artist" a gem not to be overlooked. Daniels is in top form as a tormented, brilliant playwright viewing life from the bottom of the bottle. Newcomer Thomas Macias holds his own as the adoring, aspiring playwright confronted with his hero's feet of clay. Gripping.
