This town is packed with good actors, but Hidden Theatre cofounder Baumgartner is disgustingly good, and we are getting disgusted with ourselves for pointing it out so often. His talent is clear in every role, from the psychotic girlfriend-beater of The Crackwalker and the pseudo-psychotic guerrilla activist of Accidental Death of an Anarchist to the sweet, torch-bearing best buddy of Blue Window. Keep an eye on this kid: He's got the gift but good, and as long as he continues to work with the right directors, challenging himself with a range of roles, he stands to blow many minds before the day is done.
