Clever, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Masterful, As-pound-ing

See it if You're interested in the side of Pound that everyone hated--less the genius friend of Joyce and more the anti-Semite.

Don't see it if you're expecting to learn more about Pound as a poet or artist. It's still worth your time,but like Ferryman, the payoff is at the very end

The New York Times
July 14th, 2015

"Her delivery is crisp, brisk and often deadpan, but her big, dark eyes gleam with intensity. Woven through her often very funny descriptions of lesbian-themed movies are Ms. Gomez’s comic tales of her own sexual experience...'Pound' feels more like a night at a comedy club than a straightforward autobiographical solo show. It’s a hilariously skewed queer-film studies course crossed with a standup act."

"Gomez is lewd, raw, unapologetic and crucially, very funny. Those who prefer their erotic theater entertainment subtly nuanced may not respond to 'Pound...' This is an all-inclusive highly energetic ride that is consistent with the audience's enthusiasm and standing ovations."
