What I liked
I loved so many things about this show. Christian’s writing – he’s a poet, a true spoken word artist, his commentary on society, relationships, and himself are brutally honest and delightful! Sardonic wit coupled with beautiful imagery. He could record this show as a spoken word album.
His characterizations are distinct – especially when he plays his mother, he goes through a complete transformation in picoseconds. I could have watched a show with him and his mom for another hour! The photo shoot, when she eats ice cream, and more – I love her.
His introspection and integrating with the Shadow. Fans of Jungian psychology will not want to miss this. It’s rare that I’ve seen a piece of work where the artist can so easily dissect every aspect of their person and persona, and Christian does a stellar job. It takes years of inner work to be able to approach oneself objectively, bravo!
What I didn't like
I didn’t want it to end. I feel like we just got a taste of what it’s like to be inside Christian’s House, and I want more.
My overall impression
This show does not disappoint, it’s deeply philosophical, psychological, insightful. Christian is a powerhouse of talent and I wish I could see a two hour version of this show. Funny, delightful, dark and deliberate, this man has something to say and is completely unapologetic about it! Go see House of Me!!!
