Home / 2012 Reviews / Delivers extraordinary ‘Whipping Man’

Don’t be put off by the fact that this show is about slaves, the Civil War, Jews, (black Jews no less!) or even an incredibly traumatic scene in the first half where Nickell’s character exposes a gangrenous leg. “The Whipping Man” delivers a stunning, captivating evening of theater that seizes you, holds you transfixed, rattles your brain and rearranges the way you look at the world.
