What's the Word?
"We can't remember what the filler songs "Haunted German Wood" or "Biscuits" were about, except that they were funny--mainly due to the ambitious performances of Shea and Woltz. They sweat their asses off in this under-two-hour show and do a hell of job a remembering who they are each supposed to be under those hats." -Seattlest

What's Our Word?
Just plain lazy, this production was disastrous from start to finish. With hats that were labeled too small to read and an accompanist who stole focus any chance she got, it was almost impossible to follow this story – and we have the script memorized! Actors, Evan Woltz and Chris Shea were not any better and seemed to have trouble finding the earnestness of Bud and Doug while completely missing the mark on other characters. The part where flower girl gives a blowjob to Monk during confession was not only out of place and disgusting – it wasn’t funny.
