Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Corin Raymond loves to read. And a lifetime spent reading has taught this 39 year-old Ontario singer-songwriter a thing or two about spinning tales. While Redmond’s regular gig finds him sharing those tales in song, in Bookworm, his first foray into fringe-performing, he takes us behind the dust jacket of a life spent reading.
Showcasing Raymond’s obvious talents as a storyteller, Bookworm tells a very personal tale of one man’s love of story, from Greek myth to Spider-Man to Ray Bradbury and beyond. As he stands alone on the stage, with only piles of his beloved books as company, we’re rooting for this voluble figure, even if his acting hasn’t quite caught up to his enthusiasm for the subject.
— Barb Stewart
