How can one man have us shitting bricks one second, like he so awesomely did as Nick in The Deer Hunter, and then have us laughing in hysterics the next, like when he played ruthless ping-pong master Feng in Balls of Fury? Leave it to Christopher Walken, one of the greatest thespians of our time, to deliver such dramatic range. But what’s better than Walken? How about many, many Walkens in All About Walken: The Impersonators of Christopher Walken? What started in 2006 as a onetime show in Hollywood by actor-comedian Patrick O’Sullivan has grown into a full-length tribute show, receiving raves from critics in L.A. and San Francisco. Now the show comes to New York for the first time.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Aug. 5. Continues through Aug. 15, 2010
