We really enjoyed the performance, which we visited the second time. Andreas is a very talented singer, dancer and actor. His humor is very refreshing and the show is well structured.
We think it´s sad that some people feel themselves forced to write such a bad review after leaving the show after 15 minutes. The duration of the show is 1 1/2 hours and develops step by step and is a good opportunity to go out and have fun.

Extremely well written and directed. Andreas is an amazingly talented singer and dancer who tells his story in the most entertaininly delightful way. He has so much charisma and he is able to completely engage his audience. I totally recommend it!
Quotes & Highlights
“Unbuttoned has to be one of the warmest, most endearing one-man shows to hit the stage…. well-worth seeing.” —KCRW
“Beckett exudes mega-sex appeal and gives a fantastically charming, honest performance." —Valley Scene Magazine
From the Bavarian beerhouses of his native Germany to “Manhattan, America,” to Hollywood – one day, and one lady, at a time – Andreas Beckett unfurls his heartfelt, candid life story with song and dance under the masterful hands of legendary Mitzie and Ken Welch, writers and composers for The Carol Burnett Show and winners of 14 Emmys.
Beckett performed Unbuttoned at the Whitefire Theatre’s solo series in Sherman Oaks for more than a year, as a benefit at Santa Monica Playhouse in 2009 and at last summer’s Hollywood Fringe Festival where it was named “Best of the Fest” by Les Spindle of BackStage.
