All one-man-shows are difficult feats, but Bone never falters as he switches between multiple characters, creating a metropolis with a flicker of his fingers and a buzz of his lips. His impeccable control makes it look effortless; the only sign of how hard he’s working is the sweat on his brow. Ben Roe underscores the hour with haunting guitar, creating new dimensions within Bone’s already vast imaginings. Whether or not you know your Blue Dahlia from your Sunset Boulevard, this show takes the grim world of film noir and suffuses it with infectious joy.
