Love Birds On Broadway
Dana and Shane: These lovebirds took me to the theatre to see Jay Johnson's one person show "The Two and Only". I'm always interested in how one person can keep an audience together for a solo show, but in this case of course, Johnson's dummies share the stage with him. The history of ventriloquism weaved through Johnson's personal story. He wasn't just an actor on SOAP who played the part of a ventriloquist with his dummy Bob who chewed up the scenery; he was a ventriloquist who, in his own words, "got the part of a lifetime."
