"The scene pops in part because of the imposing presence of New Jersey’s A.G. Parks as Franz, lumbering about the stage in lederhosen. Parks has played Max before, but no mention of Franz, for which he is perfect, a big man full of hate, who’s just too slow to cause much harm. And boy, can he sing."
“The actor charged with such purple passages is A.G. Parks, making his company debut as the Pirate King, playing the part as I've always imagined it: Falstaffian and ursine, with a bass-baritone to match.”
