My overall impression
They say, “You should never meet your heroes.” After seeing this play, it’s easy to see why. King Dick, a new play by the delightfully mad Christian Levatino, takes on the challenge of chronicling an encounter between two of modern American history’s biggest personalities, and in doing so, it manages to expose them as sincere individuals, convicted in their beliefs, but just as deeply flawed as you or I. Christian doesn’t hesitate to tear through the facades of legend and legacy, shattering the illusions that made these two men tower larger-than-life, revealing them to be simply human. Human, with the same quirks, addictions, hang-ups, hypocrisies, proclivities, greedy motivations, and self-serving impulses that we all deal with.
