Theater for the New City presents the world premiere of this drama about the friendship between a homeless LGBTQ teen and a formerly famous actor adrift in Hollywood. More…
In 'Wink,' a homeless and traumatized gender-questioning teenager, and Dario Villanova, a former A-list actor doing B movies, are down on their luck in Los Angeles. Kindred spirits, they bond over music and a death in Dario’s extended family, and forge a heartfelt and unconventional relationship as surrogate father and child.
See it if You like supporting "first draft" works that are repetitive & slow moving (park bench, office, etc). You like 1950s "scene change" music.
Don't see it if You want a well-acted fast-paced drama; you hate many line flubs in shows. Flashing lights at end are painful to the eyes. 1 hour 45 min.
See it if Worthwhile LGBTQ drama but the script is barely credible in that the star falls for the homeless youth so fast. Joshua De Jesus is very good
Don't see it if Joshua De Jesus is a charismatic actor but is miscast as Wink who thinks he's non-gender-specific. But Josh's Wink is definitely a boy-man
See it if you are open to characters wrestling with gender identity issues. The acting and the writing are superb and involve audience members.
Don't see it if you are not interested in dealing with the topic of gender identify especially among homeless youth.
See it if you believe that love is love, have in interest in LGBTQ issues and are open to thinking outside the box.
Don't see it if you are homophobic or don't wished to be challenged by gender norms.
See it if You are really into LGBTQ themed theater, and don't mind seeing a play that needs more development and focus
Don't see it if Your looking for a fully developed play that consists of five well rounded characters, as this piece only has two.
See it if interested in topics of the LGBT community especially younger members who are genger questioning and/or homeless. Like relevant drama.
Don't see it if U are uncomfortable with LGBT issues. U are not into profound drama plays & only want lighthearted entertainment.
