See it if ...you need a good laugh and enjoy a one-man show.

Don't see it if ...you don't have some experience with the characters found in the gay community.

See it if Drew Droege does gay characters the way John Leguizamo does Latino characters. He's smart, insightful and most of all funny, very funny.

Don't see it if This show isn't for you if you're a homophobe, don't like to laugh or might be embarrassed by seeing yourself in one of his characters.

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."
