Steve Yockey's Pluto is an unconventional family drama that tells the familiar tale of a mother struggling to connect with her son, but places them in a surreal world where the obstacles they face are unexpected and sometimes absurd. The San Francisco Chronicle has described Yockey's artistic voice as "fiercely imaginative and finely tuned," and this latest play continues that trend. In the aftermath of a local tragedy, a single mother tries desperately to jump-start her relationship with her solitary son across the breakfast table. But strange forces keep interfering: odd characters take residence in her appliances, and the family dog not only talks, but has three heads. Oh, and did we mention the angry mob gathering outside? Yockey skillfully allows the mystery of this bizarre day to unfold with perfect pacing, and the audience slowly comes to realize the very real and terrible moment being described through the supernatural events.

Will is in fine form with this cabaret show. I have attended each of his cabarets at Roundhouse the last 3 yrs and he continues to be the consummate musical theatre vocalist. He instills in each song the exact emotions required, whether longing, love, tragedy or goofiness. Since Will stopped performing in musical theatre around town this is the only chance I get to see him live and I wouldn't miss it. I wish he would do a record of all the wonderful songs he performed in musical theatre.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Smoldering and eclectic” with “sturdy, shimmery vocals, tight pacing and well-chosen material that, with help from the sparse, somewhat unorthodox instrumentation, Gartshore manages to bring new perspective to.” --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.washingtonblade.com/2010/08/04/queery-will-gartshore/"><em>The Washington Blade</em></a>
