Armed with a tape recorder and curiosity, Dan Hoyle set off in a van to find "the real America": the Main Street, blue-collar, American flag-waving, gun-firing, beer-drinking America of political campaigns, Norman Rockwell paintings, and Fox News. With director Charlie Varon, he turned his travels into a one-man show, and brought it back to the liberal meccas to serve up a slice of enlightened American pie. It is a piece that could easily tip into stereotypical generalizations, but Hoyle delivers characters, not caricatures. With the change of a hat, Hoyle slips into the skin of each new American; he is a master of dialects, inflection, physicality, and swagger. JESSIE DRAKE
