QNotes: "ATC Wows Audience with BOOTYCANDY"
The Charlotte Observer: "BOOTYCANDY Rocks (and Shocks)"
NY Times - "Searing and Sensationally Funny Comedy"
LA Times - "BOOTYCANDY Adorns Itself With Flamboyance, Ribaldry, Hilarity and Unsettling Poignancy"
PLEASE BE ADVISED: This play is called BOOTYCANDY, so they’ll be talking about booty, and showing some booty. That means strong language, mature themes, and full nudity. You’ve been warned.
Robert O'Hara's semi-biographical subversive comedy tells the story of Sutter, who is on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and even nursing homes. O'Hara weaves together scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics to create a kaleidoscope that interconnects to portray growing up gay and black. Robert O'Hara’s uproarious satire crashes headlong into the murky terrain of pain and pleasure and… BOOTYCANDY.
Scene from Playwrights Horizon's Production of BOOTYCANDY
