Many actors have tried, but there aren't enough cotton balls and walnuts in the world to fill their cheeks to look like those of Marlon Brando. The Academy Award-winning actor and activist has one of the most prolific careers and recognized names in showbiz, and was dark and brooding while Clooney and Clive were still playing with toy trucks. This Wednesday through Friday, the unauthorized Marlon Brando biopic A Love Lost Life will hit center stage at the Colony Theatre to tell the story of the legend through the complex confines of father/son relations. This edgy tale is by no means the definitive word on Brando, but anything that includes drugs, murder, suicide, homosexuality, and pregnancy sounds like a damn good time either way.
