Sodomite Jamie Brickhouse’s alcoholic odyssey from small-town sissy to louche Manhattanite is wickedly intoxicating as he hits bottom and discovers he can’t escape the all-consuming love of his Texas tornado of a mother, Mama Jean. Darkly comic, you’ll cry laughing. Directed by Obie Award-winning David Drake and ripped from the pages of Jamie’s critically-acclaimed memoir, Jamie tells the story of wrestling way too close to—and later loose from—booze, sex, and his overbearing, adorable Mama Jean. This award-winning show was lauded as “hilarious & dark” (TimeOut New York), “thoroughly entertaining,” (Theater is Easy), “rib-tickling funny” (Hi! Drama) and “stunning” (NY Theatre Guide). This production is presented as a part of the 2018 Capital Fringe Festival, a program of the Washington, DC non-profit Capital Fringe.
