Minnesota Fringe review: Atlanta Burning Sherman’s Shadows

By Dominic P. Papatola
Published at Pioneer Press / on August 4, 2018


"History Theatre founders Lance Belville and Lynn Lohr return to the Twin Cities after a lot of years with Belville’s glimpse into the mind of General William Tecumseh Sherman in the days before he laid siege to Atlanta. Framed as a conversation with one of his aides (played by Lohr, who also directs), the show features a grave, gravelly-voiced and quietly charismatic Jay Nickerson as Sherman, weighing his own doubts about a scorched-earth strategy with his duty to country.  Elegantly written and deftly performed, it’s a deep dive into history, leavened with humanity."

Presented by Bons Tempos Theatre Company at Theatre in the Round Players; 7 p.m. Aug. 4, 5:30 p.m. Aug. 7, 8:30 p.m. Aug. 8, 8:30 p.m. Aug. 11
