I Love You Bro

Saw this show on Wednesday evening.  I'm not surprised its season was extended - it is FANTASTIC!  One man on stage for 80 minutes "playing" about 10 characters, drawing you in to the sad but real world of 14 year old Johnny who's life is online - an escape from his grim homelife with his mother and mean stepfather.  It starts in a very Shakespearean way and then moves to present times.  We know how it's all going to end, but the play unwinds the tangles for us so we understand  how it all went so sadly wrong.  Really really good.
