I literally laughed and cried. One of the best one man shows I have seen. Yes, it is a gay guide to tinsel town but you knew that right? So SEE IT! Worth the money and you might even learn something if you are open to it. ... full review

Very positive. ... full review
This show is more timely than ever. As an audience member, I learned a lot about the history of the queer community in Hollywood but I also understood more than I ever have about the modern struggle, sometimes trivial, sometimes not, of men in the LGBTQ community. ... full review

This is a must see as much for its thought-provoking content as its high energy performance. Writer and performer Jon Manganello presents a whirlwind glimpse into the history of queers in Hollywood. The pace is snappy, the wit acerbic and the spotlight shone on homophobia unapologetic. This is one of those plays that will lead to long post-show discussions. For a full review, listen to episode 8 of the See It or Skip It LA Podcast.... full review

Manganello grabs a hold of LGBT issues and addresses them within the context of Hollywood history, all while remaining captivating and authentic in the way he interweaves his own personal story with so many others. Loved it! ... full review

Jon uses the lens of a studio tour guide in unique and unexpected ways. You can't help but be engaged by Jon's ability to jump from one hilarious perspective on what it means to be gay to the next. Very clever use of set design as well. You'll definitely walk away with a new outlook. Dark, Funny, Insightful, Personal. Highly recommended. ... full review
