Ken Sandberg

Ken Sandberg’s The Death of…  at the NY Winterfest Theater Festival is well acted, well written and gets to the heart of what it is like to love and lose a parent. Having previously cowrote and starred in the award winning musical Zombie! The Musical, The Death of…… is a clear case of the love for a father and the disillusionment to find your hero is flawed.

 “My dad can beat up your dad!”  There is a reason it is one of the earliest schoolyard taunts.  If our parents are our first heroes,what can we learn about Superman by looking at our dads?  What can we learn about our dads by looking at Superman? And what happens to our heroes when we grow up?

Along the way we see Sandberg’s love of theatre, the muses and the images that shape a boys life. It is funny, poignant and well written.

Heather Michele Lawler directs this piece with a sensitivity and allows Sandberg to share his memories without ever becoming maudlin or make us feel as if we are watching a therapy session.

Sandberg has a wonderfully melodic voice and his brother is credited for the song he sings to the muses. it becomes a family affair.

I highly recommend this one-man show that communicates so much and look forward to seeing more from this multi-talented writer and actor.

The Death of….. NY Winterfest, 441 West 26th Street February 23rd at 1pm, and 24th at 6pm
