Audiences are so loving this tribute to Buster Keaton playing at Sacred Fools in Hollywood that the run has been extended until August 5th. The celebrated silent film comedian is played in part by an comedy actor who idolizes his subject. While you will remember him from 3rd Planet from the Sun, here French Stewart imbues the older Keaton character with sadness and uncertainty while still providing moments of pure physical and emotional comedy. Vanessa Claire Stewart, the playwright, creates a character and situations on stage that her husband uses to enthrall the audience and have them begin to truly understand the difficulties faced by Keaton despite his success in a very young Hollywood. Using film and live piano to create a world of silent movies this is a production satisfying on numerous levels. Our private luxury tour guests interested in Hollywood history would love this play and we will certainly recommend they see it.
