Quotes & Highlights

“Andrew Schlessinger delivers a tour-de-force performance as a down-on-his luck hustler in Hughie.  From his distinctive gait (a sort of drunken cock-of-the-walk walk), to his gravely, somewhat slurred speech, to his train-wreck-about-to-happen manner, Schlessinger is one terrific Erie Smith.”—Stage Scene LA
“Hughie is a tour-de-force for Andrew Schlessinger as the central character, Erie Smith, in this textbook production at Open Fist.” – _LA Stage Happenings _
“Andrew Schlessinger delivers Erie’s restlessness and self-loathing papered over in braggadocio, his cracking voice shot through with sorrow…we experience Erie’s arc, from cheerful, gravel-voiced chatterbox to lost soul desperate for validation.” – Backstage
“Highly Recommended!!”  “It’s equal parts humor and heartbreak, with two distinctive characters who never cease to be fascinating.“—”LA Opening Nights":
