'Rashomon'
is the real deal
by RITA MORAN
The Star
 
Framing the play is a discussion among the priest, the woodcutter, and the wigmaker as they hash out what had transpired in court when the woman and the bandit testified.
 
George Schwimmer, the wigmaker, has the juciest role among the recounters and makes the most of it with wily persistence.

While performances vary, high marks are awarded to Shahbaz Khan as the proud, confident highwayman, and Schwimmer
as the perceptive grave-robber.
