About this show

Directed by Obie Award-winning David Drake (The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me), Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex & My Mother is Jamie Brickhouse's alcoholic odyssey from small-town sissy to louche Manhattanite that's wickedly intoxicating as he hits bottom and discovers he can't escape the all-consuming love of his mother Mama Jean. A Texan Elizabeth Taylor with the split personality of Auntie Mame and Mama Rose, she never has a thought she doesn't speak and unwittingly helps Jamie become an out, proud gay, HIV-positive man in recovery. Darkly comic, you'll cry laughing. Brickhouse is a three-time Moth Slam champion and New York Times published author.
