CHARACTER: Bill, "The Butcher of Harbor Park"
THEATER: Long Beach Playhouse (Long Beach, CA)
Presented by Pandora Productions
from Eric Marchese's Backstage Review:
"Long creates an almost schizophrenic persona. His murderer moves slowly and deliberately and is animalistic in a simian way, speaking in a low growl. His typical spouse is overly solicitous of Nancy while also a parody of cheerful husbands of 1950s TV, comically characterized by the sappy daily greeting 'Honey, I’m home!'"
from Mia Bonadonna's Stage and Cinema Theater Review:
"As Wray’s male counterpart, Derek Long is thoroughly entertaining as the velvety-voiced doctor-cum-killer, Bill. Long’s perfect timing, grisly (yet practical) complexity, and psycho candor serve to elevate this production tremendously."
