Amazing review at the Austinist

Andrew Varenhorst "a captivating performer, undaunted by the street noises that pass by Hot Mama's patio performance space, and entirely comfortable inhabiting Kyle's skin. The nerdy boy genius he portrays is by turns charming and tender, impatient and petulant, and it's not something that every actor might have brought to the role."

Dan Soloman writes “Varenhorst’s performance is the finest on an Austin stage so far this year, and Jemison’s brings a resigned longing to a part that had the potential to be little more than the Hooker With A Heart of Gold stereotype straight out of a 1940s Hollywood studio picture.”  He also tackles the questions raised by the play itself in a way that is entirely fair.  I think I’m going to email him and tell him about how the play used to end, before Press-Coffman altered and republished it.  I would share that with you, but then, there’d be spoilers and distractions.  Ask me next Saturday and I’ll tell you everything.

Show tonight at 9 pm sharp.  See you there.
