SALT LAKE ACTING COMPANY
The Private Eye
The cast is so strong that it seems unfair to single out any individual. Nevertheless, mention must be made of Mark Mineart’s stunning performance as Order founder Robert J. Matthews. Looking like Tom Cruise gone to hell, and sounding like a verbal fist, he projects a genuinely frightening mixture of charisma, rage, and totally focused fanaticism. In the minor role of a skinhead, he seems so nearly out-of-control that you’ll feel safer if you don’t sit in the front rows.
The Desert News
Most riveting of all is the point of violence that all these musings sharpen to. When a skinhead (Mark Mineart) comes barreling in, the audience grows limp with fear. He’s there to pound together a crude cross and crucify an already bleeding “traitor” to the cause. Which he does right before us.
