Love, Art & Sexual Perversity succeeds with "oomph" at the Rogue Festival

It's official.

I've got a "quirky sense of humor."

At least that's what the Kings River Life Magazine says about my show, Love, Art & Sexual Perversity, directed by Nicolette Tempesta in the Rogue Festival in California.

You can read the whole review here.

Love, Art & Sexual Perversity is a performance of four of my short plays--Painting by Numbers, Green-Eyed Monster, The Lift and Dog Park or Sexual Perversity in Magnuson.  All but The Lift have been produced and I'm disappointed I missed the debut of this little two-character gem because it sounds like the director and actors really did well with it.

Here's a quote from the review:

The third scene, about a couple ending their relationship on a ski lift, really takes the action of the scenes to a second level. Brian Pucheu and Ashley Hyatt begin the scene with a quiet verve that quickly turns into some snappy insults delivered with just the right amount of acid. And then, just as quickly, that anger turns again into a soft kindness and regret that is palpable in the actors’ capable performances. Tempesta’s direction of this scene ensures that it doesn’t wallow in this turn too long or too fiercely, ending the scene with a very loving feeling at its core.
