The New York Times reviews former Dallas Theater Center acting company member Martin Rayner . . .


Former Dallas Theater Center acting stalwart Martin Rayner appears as the title character in Freud’s Last Session at the off-Broadway Marjorie S. Deane Theater. In the play by Mark St. Germain, Freud debates God and man with author C. S. Lewis. By the way, Rayner played the same character in Dallas in the play,  The  Couch, for Stage #1. In that play, he debated Carl Jung.

In the New York Times, Ken Jawoworsky writes:

Still, even without much suspense there is plenty to admire in this production. Mark St. Germain’s script is astute, and the humor is plentiful. Martin Rayner delivers a wise and cranky Freud, a man who, as he nears the end of his life (the story is set three weeks before Freud’s death, in 1939) remains intellectually alive.

    thanks, I wondered. I loved that DTC company. the late and wonderful Lynn Mathis; Candy Buckley, Sean and Dee Hennigan. Who was the African American actor? Akin B..?

    I left DTC, when they disbanded that company, been a subscriber at KDT for several years now.

    Akin Babatunde. He’s still in North Texas. Still acting and directing. And, of course, Sean Hennigan is a member of the new DTC company.
