The script is beautiful, tragic and poetic. This production gripped me from the very beginning and wouldn’t let go. It was by turns shocking, poignant, delightful and heart-wrenching.... full review
I had the pleasure of experiencing the dramas of two Sam Shepard plays directed by Harrison James of Girl Trip productions. Each featured actor Adam Navas in the male lead. In Cowboy Mouth the female actor was Julia Manis, while Savage Love was a solo performance by Adam. Accompanying the actors were the audacious dancers Sarah Polednak and Kandace Hurdle. Sarah was stunning and sexy in Cowboy Mouth, while subdued and almost mournful in Savage Love. This range of ability from yoga to ballet was vital to the two extremes of both one-acts. Adam revealed vigor and great tension in Cowboy Mouth as well as an angry solo expression extraordinaire on the drums. In contrast he played a soulful, despairing character in Savage Love. These... full review

I believe the writing had to be more Patti Smith than Sam Shepard. That being written, I thought the actors were both amazing! I believed their totally dysfunctional relationship, and they were totally committed to the piece. They worked well off each other and commanded the stage. ... full review

This irreverent and sensual play takes you inside the physical body of Sam Shepard and Patti Smith's grotesque and recklessly poetic relationship. The actors are raw and courageous as they navigate this delirious journey through the hell of a spiraling dream. With graffiti and plastic all over the stage, the featured dancers are a beautiful contrast. Their choreography highlights important guttural threads in the text, when the actor’s emotions might distract us from them. They also serve as protectors who, during a sex scene, dance down stage of the actors, giving them the privacy they can't give themselves. This short play also packs a punch with explosive drumming, rough raggedy singing and electric guitar strumming from its lead actor. T... full review

Wow! The authors have distilled so much of human emotion and expression into this brief work and the director and actors have taken it more than one step further. A tour de force of range, of physicality, of connection. The audience is drawn in to the exquisite and perplexing balance of stillness and noise, anger and love, everyday and fantastical.... full review
