The event was most disappointing & embarrassing for us to watch. The unrehearsed-enough monologue of one man's very boring life history was made even worse by his silly immature weak "jokes", seriously off key flat "singing" & having to watch...continued

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.
