24: Live on Stage

“Very long.”
—Cleveland Play Review

“The fingerprints of Beckett are all over this one. Except instead of being a play without anything happening, this is non-stop explosive fun.”
—Beckett Studies

“They wouldn’t let me leave, despite that fact I was scared and tired and desperate and needed to take my insulin. The ushers were like, ‘Sorry it’s a matter of National Security.’ Despite the drawbacks, I give it two thumbs up.”
—National Newsletter Diabetics

“Jack Bauer kills at least one person each hour of the show. What would Shakespeare say about that kind of senseless bloodshed?”
—Shakespearean Bits

“I thought Victim #7, Justin Kahn, did an outstanding job.”
—Source Unknown

“What Wagner would have given for an ending like that … I hope the other audience members survived. Or at least some of them.”
—The National Enquirer

“By the end of 24 hours, I was really tired. And then the announcer said that they were taking a fifteen-minute break, between Day One and Day Two. At that point I just lost it and the ushers came and put me in holding. But I escaped. Highly Recommended.”
—Kiefer Sutherland

“As brilliant as I found the idea of using numbers for a title, what really got me as the dialogue which consisted entirely of numbers. Spellbinding!”
—Newsletter for American Mathematical Theatergoers

“If you enjoy 24 Seasons One, Two, Three, or Four you will love 24: Live on Stage. You have never seen Kiefer Sutherland as a Dancing Clam like this before.”
—Action Plays Review

“…The Partial Meltdown recreated on stage is a violation of National and International Regulations.”
—Bulletin of Atomic Scientist

“…The only letdown being Hour Seven, was cut short by 33 seconds.”
—The Daily Planet

“I went for a play that featured the songs of Billy Joel and the choreography of Twyla Tharp. What I got was a series of actual explosions and what I think was an actual death match. Cool!”
—Sir Elton John

Justin Kahn is an adjunct instructor in Philosophy. He hopped on the blogging bandwagon sometime late in September 2005. His blog, Concept of Irony, like Seinfeld, is about nothing. The similarities end there. But Justin is planning vast and sweeping changes. Until Justin initiates the Blog Renovation to End All Blog Renovations, his blog has links to some of his other works.
