Ambitious, Cliched, Funny, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if you enjoy 1-person shows, seeing gay culture in a foreign country, exploring ups and downs of friendship & the yearning for connection

Don't see it if you don't like 1-person shows, honest gay language & situations, self-deprecating & self-indulgent protagonists, or expect nudity (not any)

Scottish charmer's tale of teaching and hunting for sex in south korea

See it if hilarious solo performance by a Scot who went to Korea to teach and seek new meat. Not very good at either but scores telling it with swish.

Don't see it if you don't like solo plays, but this is done with panache, the nelly way. Stewart is a Tisch-trained playwright -- a Scottish David Sedaris.
