LA OVATION AWARD LEAD ACTOR IN A MUSICAL

CRITIC'S CHOICE! - LA TIMES
"...a tale that is, by turns, mournful, sprightly and shimmering."
Daryl H. Miller

CRITIC'S PICK! - BACKSTAGE
"...a captivating 90 minutes of humor, heartbreak, and musical pleasures." Director Nick DeGruccio and gifted actor-singers Robert J. Townsend and Chad Borden tap into the understated emotional power of this lovely work, offering a captivating 90 minutes of humor, heartbreak, and musical pleasures. - Les Spindle

WOW! - STAGE SCENE LA
"Four hits in a row for Havok!  Stellar!"

DeGruccio has proven himself as adept at staging great big musicals like Jekyll & Hyde and last December’s Rent as he is at directing chamber pieces like Thrill Me and The Story Of My Life.  In a choreography-free show like this one, the emphasis is squarely on the characters created by Borden and Townsend, and DeGruccio’s lengthy résumé as an actor is evident in the pitch-perfect performances he’s drawn from his two leads.  There’s also DeGruccio’s adeptness at keeping a two-man show like this visually interesting.  All in all, another stellar job from one of L.A.’s true theater gems. - Steven Stanley

BROADWAY WORLD
"Sweetly poetic and universally relevant.
