Review: "The Accidental Pervert"

On Thursday, January 20, 2011, I attended the Off-Broadway hit show "The Accidental Pervert" at The Players Theater. Written and performed by Andrew Goffman and directed by fellow's "Call Me Adam" participant Charles Messina, "The Accidental Pervert" tells the true story of one man's journey growing up discovering his dad's pornography collection "in a bedroom closet, just to the right of his golf clubs, above the cowboy boots, behind the sweatshirts, all the way up in the top left hand corner" and how this affected him until he met his wife and had a child of his own.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I agreed to come see "The Accidental Pervert," but what I found was a fun, hilarious, and smart play about one man's growth from a child into an adult. Andrew is comedic genius because he has put together a show about a subject not many people talk about and has found a very funny way of presenting his journey from discovering his dad's pornography collection and how that affected his thoughts about sex, women, and most of all his relationship with his dad. What young boy or young boy's friend hasn't discovered his dad's porn collection? What boy hasn't had questions about what he's been exposed to? Well, Andrew takes this discovery and questions and deconstructs them with humor, light-heartedness, and bravery.

The way Charles' brilliant direction and input helped bring Andrew's story full circle from childhood to adulthood to parenthood is beautiful, cleaver, and most of all inspiring. The set, props, music, and visuals are perfectly matched to the story, adding a deeper understanding to Andrew's story.

"The Accidental Pervert" is a show to see because it's truthful...men can relate to it because most of them have been in Andrew's shoes and women can relate to it because it gives them an inside look into a guy's head. So come on down to "The Accidental Pervert" at The Players Theatre (115 MacDougal Street, 3rd floor) for an evening of insight, laughter, and fun!

who would think that something like that will reach Broadway but at least it can be a good comedy. Thanks for the review. I hope that it is better than the one related to viagra
