The Gospel of Sherilyn Fenn was performed at the 2016 Frigid Festival in New York City.
The true story of how storyteller Brad Lawrence survived a childhood in the Reagan Eighties, the rise of the moral majority and meth amphetamine, the terrors of sex and nuclear bombs, and his guest role in a sibling’s suicide by escaping into pop culture. This is a show about learning compassion for oneself through the saving grace of cable television.
“For one hour on a bare stage, he [Lawrence] has nothing but his dry, harrowing sense of hubris to hold the audience, and he is fascinating, unquestionably.”
– Matthew Trumbull, NYTheater.com
”If dying is hard and comedy hard, being honest about yourself must be downright impossible. Lawrence, however, makes all three appear equally effortless, and important.”
