Aumiller and his talented cast pull a classic bait and switch: Come for the nudity, stay for the emotional and structural striptease.
The show gets progressively richer with every scene, proving that writer and director Tim Aumiller and his talented cast know exactly what they’re doing, even if you do not.
The theatre company is called NO HOPE Productions, which doesn’t sound too promising, but Tim Aumiller’s play, Luke Nicholas, which he has also directed, gives me hope for gay theatre.
On a deeper level, the play is a meditation on the prickly politics of contemporary gay connections.
Luke Nicholas is the quintessential example of what should be found at the ongoing NY International Fringe Festival.
