WHO’S AFRAID OF DAVID LYNCH?
(or “How to Erase Your Elephant’s Heart on the Blue Velvet Peaks of Mulholland Drive and Return Straight to the Lost Highway of the Duneland Empire )
David Lynch has gone missing…
…leaving only his hairdresser Judy to try and solve the mystery. However, in doing so, she will plummet into a darkly absurd world of such, sexuality, violence, and nightmarish confusion that only David Lynch himself, and his fans (or haters) could possibly fathom. Songs from his uncompromising cinematic catalogue will ensue. Prepare yourself to enter a place both wonderful and strange.

CRITIC REVIEWS FOR THE DEATH OF SAM MOBEAN
Stage Raw Top 10!
“RECOMMENDED – The ensemble is excellent, though my personal favorite is Heather Schmidt, who suddenly turns up in the third scene (of course, without explanation). She is funny, inventive, compulsively watchable..”
“…the smartest, most fiercely enacted, most engaging and mysterious piece seen thus far by these eyes at Hollywood Fringe Festival and the journey of discovery offered here is one that should be left unspoiled for those who will be able to witness it.”
- Christine Deitner (The Theatre Times)
CRITIC REVIEWS FOR “SHAKESPEARE’S…”:
“LA Weekly, “Shakespeare as a Rock Star…For sheer entertainment value and uncanny comic timing, Shaw’s dozen-song impersonation of an alcoholic and dissipated Shakespeare on the eve of his death — defending his authorship from posterity’s naysayers — can’t be beat.”
-Bill Raden, LA Weekly
“…overall, this is the apex of this talented artist’s work up to this point and his medieval pop score is unmatched in its wit and originality…”
-Colin Mitchell, LA Bitter Lemons
