The Originalist was an outstanding show I recommend for all to see! The finest acting out there
Great show! Amazing acting, still gushing over this performance. Will tell everyone I know to see this.
Loved the show. Really gives you things to think about.
Smart, well written play; actors believable, well-rehearsed & passionate; direction outstanding and engaging; lighting was syncopated perfection; and the set was simple enough to keep the focus on the players yet not so bare as to lose the audience in the open spaces. Very creative. I thoroughly enjoyed this production & want to see it again. Well done, IRT!
Wow! What a fabulous performance. The actors were obviously blessed with a superbly written script, but their respective performances certainly did justice, (no pun intended) to the author's work. Congratulations all around.
We loved the Originalist! What great acting by all three. Interesting to watch combative characters begin to listen to one another. Maybe there is still hope for our nation.
We saw this play last evening and LOVED it!! All of the actors were great and believable. We have a real interest in Scalia so this gave us a little more insight into him and his opinions. I think that this play is very timely as there is still so much discussion going on today about all of these same issues! Can't believe that we are still discussing people's basic rights!! Very well done and we certainly enjoyed it!
About the Play
Supreme Court Justice and conservative icon Antonin Scalia hires a young, liberal, female law clerk, and opinions start flying right and left. Every point of view is explored in this thoughtful, witty, open-minded look at one of our most galvanizing national figures.
