A very entertaining indeed from Blessed Unrest as they presented Jessica Burr’s vision of the myths of Echo,
Narcissus, Orpheus and Eurydice, intertwined with lovers in the present time. It was cohesive, enjoyable and visually entertaining. Given a bigger budget, Burr can definitely be a force to reckon with. The whole cast is amazing as well. The stand-out for me though was Jason Griffin. In the beginning I found it odd that he was chosen to play Narcissus, the man who fell in love with himself because Mr. Griffin is really skinny and funky, not the first attributes you will think for Narcissus. But he won me over with his heartfelt performance as he is heart broken, unable to touch the man he loves, himself. The gorgeous Marco de Ornella played Orpheus, the man who wants to save his love from the underworld. He was shirtless most of the play as he displayed his nice torso and muscular arms, and hairy pits. Too bad the most that you can see from him was his hairy crack as he bends over and over throughout the play. Griffin showed his ass as well as Darrell Stokes as he hump his lover Amerika. I must say, he has a nice big ass. Andrew Dahl, the fourth male cast member only dropped his pants and showed his skivvies. We all should watch out for future performances of this very talented theater company.
NUDITY RATING: 2
