This play kicks the living crap out of you while asking you to acknowledge the softest, sweetest, most vulnerable human parts of this world, and then it kicks you some more. I loved it.
“I could almost hear them thinking, “Is this really happening?” I know this because at some point, I started watching the audience to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating.”
The same artsy shots, repeating scenes, and haunting dialogue that make it indie/creative/experimental just make it boring/repetitive/annoying. It doesn’t take stupidity to task, it glorifies it.

Three bands I can’t get out of my head! You’ll probably love them, too.
“You may find a copy of a gay paper on the street, in a garbage can, on a subway seat, a bus seat, and it would help save your life. Just being there was life-saving.”

Being young and in love makes you an idiot monster, and that’s what “Jack & Diane” is about.
“If anything, The Edmonton Queen reads as a triumphant fuck you in the face of death and losing people you love before their time.”
“This slightly labelphobic queer went into The Femme Show full of unaddressed preconceived notions about the word, and left with a brand new appreciation for it.”
Maybe we all share the same eyes or the same hearts. Maybe we just share the same vocabulary.
“Ward is a singer-songwriter from Monroe, Georgia. She has hair like Lissie and a wardrobe rivaling Idgie Threadgoode’s. Most importantly, she has more husk in her voice than a stalk of corn.”
“I am glad to be here with you in 2012. But I am glad someone was there in 1950.”
“Hat tips to both of them for getting a bunch of half-drunk festival-goers to dance along to lyrics about black lesbian identity politics.” – Pitchfork. “Meet my new favorite band.” – Autostraddle

It doesn’t make any sense. That’s because it’s a love story.
