Review by PATTI SHEPARD

June 12, 2016

What I liked

The show worked well. I was a bit Leary when I read in the program there would be improv, and while it didnt work 100%, I see why the cast chose to put it in the scenes they did. The narration was amazing, the voice from “the sky” so to speak really glued the show together as it move forward. The two leads, Scott and Jesse worked so well together. I wouldn’t be surprise with their chemistry if they were dating in real life. The shorter one, gave a performance to remember with his audition scene, and again when he decided to turn the tables on I won’t say who. While these two performers stood out, the entire cast was phenomenal. I had a chance to talk to the director afterwards, and to hear his story and see the pain he went thru, I had no words. I hope he continues to share his story.

What I didn't like

They didn’t explained wnough about the lead’s confusion on God and homosexuality as much as I would of liked, and this is just me being nit picky.

My overall impression

Must See, I hope they can turn it into a full 2hour stage production, or a movie as the director talked to me about.
