"The ever-inventive Dow has to be a national treasure."

REVIEWS FOR BRUCE DOW in PIG at BUDDIES
"Dow appears to be relishing the idea of recreating himself as an actor.
* brilliant and chilling * a major modern actor * superb * brilliant * riveting * a force on stage * transcendent * bafflingly good * takes the biggest risk and nails it * a jaw dropping performance of the highest quality imaginable * a force of nature * mesmerizing and shattering * elegant * unexpected * beautiful * virtuosic * a revelation * magnificent * exciting * heartfelt *
he will haunt you after the more shocking imagery has faded from mind.
Riveting are the brave, intense performances of its three actors, in particular that by a protean Bruce Dow."
