American Sexy by Trista Baldwin
The New Theatre Group
Minnesota Fringe Festival 2008
with Rose Le Tran, Natalie Remus, Justin Jenkins, Patrick Kozicky
"...it's a jaundiced, heart-heavy depiction of post-romance sexuality, when a declaration of love is regarded as an antiquated inconvenience. This is a work that drops grenades without cleaning up afterward, a raw look at a culture unacquainted (or perhaps overly acquainted) with its own desires."
- Quinton Skinner, City Pages
"Wreckage wrought by society's oversaturation of sex is explored unflichingly in
Trista Baldwin's shattering one-act... Director Brian Balcom's beguiling cast exudes a reckless sense of eroticism that unfolds organically into revelations that astound."
- John Townsend, Star Tribune
"One of the best shows I've seen at the Fringe--smart, bracingly funny, and disturbing script; strong ensemble cast; and solid direction... This show asks us to look beyond the shallow facades to the hurt souls underneath, revealing a similary damaged society that informs them."
- Hae Ryun Boo, Online Audience Review
