‘This is virtuoso writing and performing: rich and loamy, hard as granite and reveling in surprising juxtapositions and cheeky, heartbreaking jokes that make you wince…writing and a performance of unflagging and effortless panache that grabs your heart and squeezes tightly.’  Lyn Gardner, Guardian

‘passionate one-man show…Mr. Kinevane interprets Valentino’s highly theatrical screen presence to stunning effect…carefully wrought production…[he] doesn’t just demand [the audience’s] attention, he commands it. And that difference is what makes Mr. Kinevane an artist of the theater.’ Ben Brantley, The New York Times

‘Kinevane moves, in a striking performance under Jim Culleton’s effective direction, with the elegance of a dancer and the engaged poise of a boxer. It’s a startling combination…the caress of poetry and the disarming direct address of stand-up…a moving story, which, until its end, pulses with the erratic noise of life.’ Irish Times

‘a solo tour de force… The Irish actor spellbinds… Culleton and Kinevane forge a high theatricality… This is high-level acting, hand-in-hand with a shrewdly crafted portrait that you’ll find hard to shake off.’ The Washington Post
