Charles Busch's latest play, The Tribute Artist has had mostly mixed reviews. While it's always fun to see him in wig and gowns the plot is too convoluted and as my friend and colleague Michael Sommers of the New Jersey Newsroom said, he's not written himself an ideal main character. He trumped this opinion with an apt simile.
Curiously, the title figure is rather a dim bulb: Jimmy only comes alive when he depicts vintage movie dames. Otherwise the poor guy is as interesting as a wire hanger without its glamorous gown.For Curtainup's take on the play: www.curtainup.com/tributeartist.html
