LA Theater Review
A dozen men and one woman portray 22 characters. Jaycob Hunter makes a sturdy, good-hearted Jim Hawkins, showing us how the young man's adventures accelerate his growth from sheltered adolescent to brave sailor of the high seas. Ryan Young's Hands is a scummy blackguard and Nick McGee's Squire Trelawney a jovial fool. Long John Silver is easily the most colorful and complex role and has the most memorable lines in Ludwig's script, and Scott Keister capitalizes on this with his ever-fascinating portrait of a ruthless yet tenderhearted seafaring rascal. He's this staging's heart, and despite the often-chaotic activity around him, he never misses a beat.
Presented by Theatre Out and Maverick Theater at the Maverick Theater, 110 E. Walnut Ave., Suite B, Fullerton. April 24–June 6. Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat., 3 and 8 p.m. (714) 526-7070 or www.mavericktheater.com.
