IHLY New York 2013 ReviewsAudience response in New York was incredible, strong houses, loud laughter, the occasional standing ovation and many wonderfully warm chats in the foyer afterwards! Our reviews have been great and we will be back, take a look below to find links to the reviews:
and this from Hi-Drama:
BARRY LIEBMANN REVIEWS "I (HONESTLY) LOVE YOU"
WRITTEN & DIRECTED by Damon Lockwood
Anybody who thinks that honesty is the most important thing in a relationship should check out "I (Honestly) Love You." Actually, anybody who's ever been on a date, or has a funny bone, should check out this marvelous show. It's premise is delicious: A man and a woman who have a disease that makes them incapable of lying meet and fall in love. We get to watch them on their first date, their first time in bed, and the first time he meets her parents--and its a total hoot. There's even a twist that I won't reveal (because, unlike the characters, I can keep a secret.) The whole show has an air of spontaneity about it , as if it was concocted by an improvisational troupe. That's because there's an occasional breaking down of the fourth wall, audience participation, and fast quips about the characters being in a show. Nonetheless, Paul Goddard and George Gaylor*, as the lovers, play it just straight enough for us to want to see them stay
together. They really do make a charming (if somewhat strange) couple. And they're well supported by Damon Lockwood and Talei Howell-Price playing multiple roles (some in one scene alone.) No lie: I HONESTLY LOVE THIS SHOW.
*Just in case you're wondering George Gaylor is a woman.
So our tour has ended and our team have now all flown home to their respective cities, we hope to do it all again next year with some extra cities added in - it has been an incredibly rewarding and enriching experience. A big thank you to everyone who believed in us and supported us and a massive thank you to the audiences who came and shared their enthusiasm and regard for the show.
