Storytelling can be simple. All you need is a place to share it. And maybe a little chalk. In Alex Curtis’ Chalk, Curtis creates a world of his own on the walls of the Kraine Theater where his dreams become a reality. Chalk is cute and easily an audience pleaser but by no means is it perfect.
As a performer, Curtis has a flair for physicality. He is a delight to watch, capturing hearts and breaking them when his does. The character Curtis creates is goofy, falling all over the stage. His relationship with the coat rack, expertly crafted by Alex Haynes, is unbelievably special.
Chalk is a show that will warm your heart but it’s all a show that is still a work in progress. In time, Alex Curtis will have a hit on his hands. It just needs a little more fleshing out.
