What I didn't like

thought it was great as is

My overall impression

Wow. I left Flayed both moved by the deeply personal nature of the story and impressed at the virtuosity of the performance. Flayed takes you on a wild journey bursting with creativity and hilarity, securely within the capable hands of Josiah, who transforms from moment to moment as he draws you into his magical landscape. It’s impossible not to connect with the storytelling, and the audience is as much a part of the fun as the kaleidoscope characters. It’s a must-see show.
