A New War Record!

Kyle Hatley closed the run of An Iliad on a triumphant note yesterday. Before the show, he got one last crack at racing through the list of wars. The goal was to beat his record of 1:34, which he’d been struggling to do for a week. In fact, on Sunday he was determined to keep reciting the list, over and over, until he got it in 1:33 or less.

As it turns out, he was selling himself short. Kyle sped through the wars just once and finished at 1:27. Consider that old record crushed!

That warm-up set the tone for a great final performance, and now Kyle is on his way home, no doubt anxiously awaiting another chance to play the Poet and challenge his record again.
