Dylan Thomas Reenactment
Comes To Jimmy Tingle's Off Broadway

When actor Bob Kingdom appears on stage at Jimmy Tingle's Off Broadway from November 6 - 8 in "Dylan Thomas - Return Journey," it will be a homecoming of sorts for the spirit of the legendary Welsh writer.

While Thomas was beloved in his tiny country of Wales, much of his fame can be attributed to four exhaustive reading tours he made of the United States and Canada in the 1950s. It was in the United States that Thomas enjoyed center stage attention and earned not only a world-renowned reputation, but the much needed money which he ultimately squandered.

Kingdom has received rave reviews and standing ovations for his reenactment of the poet's final lecture tour - developed from the stories, poems and anecdotes of a man whose immoderate lifestyle became almost as legendary as his remarkable poetry. It is an evening that celebrates and rediscovers Thomas' prose and poetry.

Originally directed by another noted Welshman, Sir Anthony Hopkins, "Dylan Thomas - Return Journey" is part of a sixteen-city North American tour commemorating the 50th anniversary of Thomas' death on November 9, 1953.
