In The Gun Show, the fourth wall is down, the script is onstage, the playwright is in the audience, and the actor playing the playwright is periodically having conversations with the playwright about the play. Regardless of whether a one-person meta-play sounds appealing, The Gun Show is an experience, and it’s worth going if only to see Vin Shambry’s rollercoaster performance. Soft and tender one moment, jaded and full of righteous anger the next, joking around while doing a solid impression of Patrick Swayze’s Dirty Dancing finale moves a moment later, Shambry is stunning; in many ways, he’s embodying the confusion and emotional frustration of this moment in American history.
