About the show

A 2012 New York Times Critics Pick, this solo show is about a Goth boy in Texas in 1991, who dreams of being in London, standing alone in the rain, wearing fishnet gloves and a cape. More…

In this funny and moving examination of rebellion, sexuality and friendship, David Crabb reflects on what it means to grow up different and alone. This solo show is based on the true story of a Texas teen who navigates his outcast adolescence in a goth-obsessed, drug-fueled haze. It is a candid and hysterically honest examination of what it means to grow up different and alone.

for a previous production "An accomplished storyteller is not always the same as a well-trained actor or even a spot-on mimic. Performers who sit at a table and weave their tales mostly with their voices are part of a tradition of theatrical storytelling as rich as that of solo quick-change artists. Crabb might have been ...

for a previous production "The best thing abut 'Bad Kid' is that it’s extremely friggin' hilarious! Crabb acts in detail of all of the most foolish and embarrassing moments in his life. Whether its being tricked into experimenting his sexuality with a cucumber or being drugged with cocaine by his odd ball friends, I could...
