Jazzyjack Review: ' The Ballad of Phil Ochs ' (13) Review: ' The Ballad of Phil Ochs ' 17 Apr 03

Here is a shameless promotion of my son's first theatre effort out of university with the first review of his show; "The Ballad of Phil Ochs"

"The Ballad of Phil Ochs is the title of an astonishing performance currently at the Phoenix Theatre, at U. Vic. It continues Friday only, at 4:30PM both days. Admission is only $5, or by donation.
It is a "must see" for aficionados of folk music, and for those engaged in the struggle to change the world.
Zachary Stevenson is remarkable in his portrayal of Ochs, both in terms of his perfect duplication of Ochs' musical style, and in terms of the internal stuggles that Ochs, a revolutionary in a non-revolutionary period of history, experienced, until his premature death, at age 36. Treat yourself. See it this Friday."

On Fri. Apr 18 he is staging this show professionally for the first time and the playwright's wife, a theatre manager, intends to create a Canadian tour for him which may go later to the States.
