The weather was A little chilly in the theater. I wore formal attire (slacks, sweater, wool coat, patent leather heels), because I was prepared for a traditional theater setting, but I felt way overdressed. This is a community theater with individual plastic chairs on risers and not a formal theatre. I didn't feel uncomfortable, but would have been fine in jeans and a sweater. Also, there was a slight draft or cool fan blowing throughout show, so I needed my coat. .

Geoff Hoyle is amazing. It was a solo show but there were at least a dozen characters on stage. I wish I had a video of the performance: there were so many things I'd like to see again and again and study. The audience was the "geezer"...continued

Superb performance, great writing and thinking both. A total riot, it really hit home r.e. vulnerability to aging. Geoff Hoyle is a master!
