Go see my brother-in-law Off-Broadway

The AP reviews my brother-in-law's play: Campy aliens no drag in 'Devil Boys From Beyond':

You can tell from the title that "Devil Boys From Beyond" intends to be fun, and the campy production that opened Saturday night at New World Stages does not disappoint. It's a satiric, raunchy, all-male spoof of low-budget science-fiction films from the 1950s, performed with gusto by the talented cast.â¦

Robert Berliner is all lockjawed uprightness as Mattie's booze-yearning, unfaithful former spouse. "Your pen is as poison as the blood in your veins," Greg snarls at Mattie, just one of the many wonderfully exaggerated, back-to-the-1950s lines of the play.â¦

Notably intricate wig designs by Gerard Kelly, massive eyelashes for the female characters, and detailed, kitschy period costumes by Gail Baldoni are all perfectly in tune with the pervading goofy, B-movie-in-drag mood. Minimal scenic design is aided by retro-tinged sound and lighting.

Worth a visit next time you're in NYC.
