Published Reviews

"Loosely basing his madcap comedy on Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, local director and playwright Matthew Foster mixes a lethal dose of desperate drama and over-the-top humor. The tight, witty script follows a gay twentysomething, Marcello, as he drowns in the meaninglessness of our polluted society... You may not find enlightenment, but you're gonna love those screwed-up slag jugglers."
