My overall impression

From the catchy title alone, one can deduce that this show is flare and fun infused. Marc Francoeur manages to take the audience on an engaging, emotional, and very real journey through his development from childhood through adolescence. A very difficult journey toward the self realization that he is gay is presented with a wit and momentum that is engaging from beginning to end. The original music is seamlessly incorporated into the story telling, and Francoeur’s ability to maintain the level of energy necessary for delivering the fast-paced songs and rapid dialogue with heart and sincerity for a straight 90 minutes is quite a feat in and of itself! A big thumbs up to the ensemble of women in the show who all do a fantastic job of switching from character to character and transforming the stage from scene to scene. The band also deserves accolades for their necessary contribution which definitely made the show feel like a rock concert. FABULOUSLY ENTERTAINING!!
