LA Theater Review
The Crocodile Sings
All the while, Parrish wanders the stage, often taking a seat or pouring himself a few sips from a decanter. The actor makes the text seem spontaneous and, in the process, highlights the challenges of the one-person format. Audiences may know about Williams' drug addiction or his homosexuality but are sure to learn more about Williams than they might have expected. Here, Williams ultimately admits that loneliness, from which he always suffered, was the constant theme of his work; that he loved the theatre and loved writing for it; and that he was certain he would be remembered only as a minor playwright, proving that the one thing Williams wasn't was a gauge of his plays' astonishing grasp of human nature and of how that acuity would be prized long after he was gone.
