So I recently came upon a review about not only the play but also my participation in that play titled "Pat and Lyndon" about the Vietnam war. It is a work by Archer Crosley and was put on stage by the Pharr Community Theatre in Pharr, Texas under the direction of Luis Moreno.
I remember when I was approached about possibly doing the play I said ok I'll look at the script and see if I will audition. I read the whole thing back and forth, consuming it like some kick ass tacos or something. I thought "This was written for me!!" Literally. So after I auditioned and they loved me as the Prez :) I totally threw myself at it like my life depended on it. Sure enough, I guess all the hard work paid off 'cause apparently the performance was thought of as superb by this one critic who is like the Siskel or the Ebert (not sure which one, lol) of South Texas and it was a rave review he did deliver. Here is a minor sample of the review:
"Pat and Johnson is a production that highlights not only the sacrifice of Valley veterans but that of Valley talent through the acting of Sanchez. Sanchez is able to emphasize the importance of dialogue to articulate the feeling of a war without extensive special effects or war props."
Of course, I was not alone in this magnificently executed project. All of my fellow actors did such an awesome job that I was just so glad to have decided to take part in it. It was a match made in heaven between all the cast. Maybe sometime I will share a little sample of the video of it taken during one of our shows. Soon.
