The acting was exceptional- as good as or better than most I have seen. It is amasing what can be done in so small a space.

Quotes & Highlights

“Thanks to the work of director Stodard and the lovely performances of a three-man cast, The Drawer Boy is once again demonstrating the warmth, humor and loss contained in a compelling story … Stodard has shaped her small cast into a cohesive ensemble. Gibbons is delightfully deadpan … Kroczynski is moving and energized.” —Miami Herald
“An enormously powerful show” —__New Times   __
“Miles (Scott Douglas Wilson) and Angus (Mark Krozynski) are wonder in the play … a jigsaw puzzle of a comic drama… We are left with art’s power to entertain on one level, but heal and transform on another.” —Sun Sentinel

About the Ticket Supplier: Thinking Cap Theatre

Since its founding in 2010, Thinking Cap Theatre has brought a slice of NYC’s downtown theatre scene to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Thinking Cap has made a name for itself locally and nationally for tackling challenging works. The company’s artistic director Nicole Stodard was named Best Director by the New Times in 2012.

Thinking Cap is devoted to experimental, provocative, and socially-conscious work. We program plays that tell compelling stories in fresh and surprising ways. Thinking Cap also aims to engage with works that treat a range of identities more accurately reflective of today’s society; to dismantle norms and stereotypes through non-reactionary, honest means; and to present historical works that have rarely or never seen the light of the stage.
