Ubu Roi

"Particularly robust applause should be bestowed upon Vanessa St. Clair, who takes her role as Mama Ubu, which could have easily been caricatured or subdued into the realm of Tertiary Character Purgatory, as the ideal opportunity to broadcast her unparalleled, efficacious presence on stage. St. Clair’s physical and dialogic performances transcend the expectations of comedic performances, and her portrayal of Mama Ubu is, to use a trite phrase I typically abhor, a show-stealing delight."
