Review by DANIEL HOUSMAN

June 23, 2014 certified reviewer

My overall impression

This show takes you on a journey inside the head of a Gen Y guy looking for love, meaning, adventure, and connection in the random corner of the LA nightscape. Rodwin successfully lets you into his mind so you understand his perspective, his self-image, his inner needs… and then introduces you to an encounter with an over-sexed, over-narcotized young woman who is seemingly adept at playing her cards, but is truly a lost little girl with less than a bright future. In a style that is energetic, engrossing, humorous but not glib, Rodwin touches on our need for eros, connection, and the comfort of strangers; and he talks about sexuality without ever being crass.
