See it if you like your comedy fast and furious by a great actor who does many roles extremely well. Minimal but effective staging.
Don't see it if you have higher expectations after seeing Bright Colors and Bold Patterns - it is in the same vein but the content is not as strong.
See it if fan o Drew Droege, enjoy 1-person plays as actor assumes variety of roles, appreciate a gay male sensibility, can laugh at gay archtypes
Don't see it if not a fan of 60-minute, 1 person play, don't like gay content or don't find gay humor or characters funny. want more depth or insight
"Here’s a Vodka Stinger.: Drew Droege’s solo show is a laugh-out-loud funny social sendup, but it doesn’t add up to more than a series of vignettes."
"As an actor, the animated and immensely skilled Droege is peerless. Without any costume changes, by just utilizing his own talents and with the aid of artful strategic lighting fluctuations...Droege manages to continually look and sound totally different during this hour-long tour de force."
Best Bet. "Both a scathing take-down and sweet celebration of white gay male culture, 'Happy Birthday Doug' is an uproarious gathering…execution is everything. And this is where the show shines…most important is Droege's expertise with a character's energy."
Score: 75% "These characters blend together in a slow current, albeit often hilarious, looking for a destination. It is light fare delivered by a master story teller. I was hoping for something more layered."
"Some of the characters rotate in and out of the action, and others have only a single scene, but Droege assumes their personae and projects their individuality with ease."
