“Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All you worshipers in the...
“Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All you worshipers in the temple of the theater, shout “Hallelujah!” …. Storyteller-actor-writer Jim Loucks is lighting up one corner of the Fringe Festival with his solo show, Cemetery Golf — 75 minutes of fresh, amusing, often moving recollections of a Georgia childhood…. Loucks has the master storyteller’s art locked. He can etch a memorable character out of six words, a single gesture, an altered stance and a slight change in vocal quality….Loucks also leaps nimbly from character to character with grace and little apparent effort, never letting the audience wonder who’s speaking, often carrying on two-party and three-party conversations with himself. It’s a high art, somewhat different from conventional acting, often best exhibited when, as in this case, the actor is also the writer.”
CRITIC'S PICK
-Tom McElfresh, Cincinnati Citybeat, May 29, 2009

“This is a classic Fringe one-man show, about 75 minutes long that includes solid characterization by Loucks. The script is really well crafted. The characters are clear, without doubt known inside and out.”
THE CONVEYOR
Cincinnati Cultural Incitement (Riots Not Included), May 29, 2009

“Georgia-native Jim Loucks’ animated personal memoir performance is a gem…. Loucks plays a handful of characters in authentic, detailed and often amusing fashion. But what makes “Cemetery Golf” special is that there’s love in the portraits. His parents are larger than life, for sure, but they’re not monsters. And young Jimmy struggles to fit in to his family while doubting his faith.”
-Mark Collins, Boulder Daily Camera, August 2009

“I expected a humorous rant about the religious right, but instead got a very tender piece about a man’s conflict about his religious beliefs as surveys his life growing up. The many characters Jim plays are played forcefully and with passion.”
-Denver Dave, August 2009 - REVIEWS FOR CEMETERY GOLF
