They are Dying Out

“But its Cox who is this production’s shot in the arm of mind blowing, hysterical and over the top intoxication. Cox can play as big as Godzilla and then rein it in on a dime to deliver something wickedly wonderful, hilario
us, haunting or heartbreaking. He can be the master of macabre, the bartender of bizarre and the torchbearer of tenderness, be that playful or melancholy, with seemingly effortless ease.”

“Juan Peron, presented as an unaware, migraine-suffering blowhard, is given an industrious reception in the able hands of comedic mastermind Kevin Cox.”
