Around The Town Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...During these 90 minutes, we meet Snowden (Nick Bryant is sterling in making us feel that this is indeed a real event, and not a scripted play). In fact, during the play, they ask the audience to add questions to Snowden, and I know there were no provided questions, so when they were asked, Bryant had to own enough knowledge of the NSA and GCHQ as well as the CIA and governmental workings to sound credible and honest. This was amazing! The Press conference is run by Natasha of the FSB (a stunning performance by Lara Dohner, who not only looks like an Soviet agent, she truly makes one feel that she knows everything about each of us in the audience). The other agent. Agent Flenkins (JT Nagle has the feeling of a disturbed “man in black” for sure). It seems that Flenkins and Snowden have “history” and a great deal comes out during their discussion."
