The Marsh Berkeley - Cabaret Captioning for the hearing impaired provided for the first three Saturday, 5pm shows. Thur at 8pm Fri at 8pm Sat at 5pm “Brilliant… inspirational tale about a folk musician coping with severe hearing loss… sheer magic.” (FIVE STARS) –Liz Hover, Uptown Magazine, Winnipeg “One of the funniest, most poignant and inspiring performances you’re likely to see for a long time.” (Highly Recommended) –Bruce Demara, The Toronto Star “Grippingly honest… heart-rendingly beautiful. It’s truly a gift.” (FIVE STARS) – Demetra Hajidiacos, The Winnipeg Free Press “Wickedly engaging… one hell of a one-man show.” (FIVE STARS) – Gilbert Bouchard, Canadian Broadcasting Co. “This show is a powerhouse… a triumph of confessional storytelling. A delightful 80 minutes that fly by.” (FOUR & 1/2 STARS) – Richard Helm, Edmonton Journal “Emotionally honest and surprisingly funny… A must see for anyone who has grappled with the transitions of life.” (FIVE STARS) – John Threlfal, Monday Magazine, Vancouver BC Randy Rutherford has collaborated with director David Ford at the Marsh Theatre to create five musical memoirs. He has been voted 21 times ‘Best of Fringe’ on the North American Fringe Theatre Circuit and is the recipient of London’s Brickenden Award. His play This May Feel A Little Funny played to rave reviews at the Marsh in 2006. If it’s very quiet, Randy Rutherford can still hear the guitar. What this troubadour and veteran storyteller gives his audience in this mosaic of memoir, music, and humor goes well beyond entertainment. Join Rutherford on this heart-felt reminiscence of his days in 1970s Alaska, where he began living his “ramblin’ man” dream, found (and lost) his true love––and got diagnosed with congenital hearing loss.
