A RISING TIDE

Victor Slezak is Sam’s father and anyone who is a parent can identify with his reactions and interactions with his son. The entire cast brings reality to this semi-fictional tale.

“A Rising Tide” is a beautiful love story not just about a young complicated couple, but also about a father and son and a love of one’s family and community.

Neil LaBute’s HERE WE GO ROUND THE MULBERRY BUSH

But a deep reservoir of compassion feeds Mr. LaBute’s portrait of Bill, a determinedly deluded man struggling against what’s ugliest and most dangerous in himself. In a beautifully restrained performance, Mr. Slezak allows us to feel Bill’s agony and forces us, gently, to acknowledge humanity where it might be easier to see a monster. -New York Times

Once again, the acting is superb, particularly from Victor Slezak, who, under the sensitive direction of Maria Mileaf, slowly peels back the fragile layers of a man at war with himself and desperately afraid of losing. -Broadway & Me

The GUILD HALL Production of John Logan’s play RED

“It takes a great artist to play one, and Mr. Slezak is a consummate artist. Building the character from the inside out, his Rothko is by turn viciously bullying, then pathetically vulnerable, a genius tortured by his own mortality. Mr. Slezak spoke recently of learning his craft under the master teachers of American theater during the 1970s and 1980s, people like Uta Hagen and Stella Adler, whose work, he hopes, can be brought forward to a new generation. With this performance, he does just that.” – East Hampton Star T.E. McMorrow
