Sitting at a table in Palm Beach Dramawork’s rehearsal hall, Rob Donohoe doesn’t look or sound a thing like Truman Capote. He’s taller, his hair is brown and full and his voice is a warm baritone. But he and director Lynette Barkley have been cataloguing the external public celebrity and the internal tortured soul in preparation for the one-man drama Tru opening Dec. 2.
The word “hilarious” rarely applies to a bleak unblinking play about mortality, but Palm Beach Dramawork’s superb production of Eugene Ionesco’s Exit The King earns it, along with “profoundly thought-provoking” and other accolades. Simply, it ranks among the best work that the company has mounted in its 13 seasons.
