Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is a riotous new solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed “fantastic” and “pure magic” by Time Out New York, and “side-splitting” and “fresh” from The Huffington Post when it debuted in New York last year. It was hailed as “raucous, witty and occasionally moving” by The Daily Beast, “a very funny play” by The New York Post, “outrageous and stinging” by Out Magazine and “relentlessly funny” by Buzzfeed.
