“It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before…the unrestrained id of an artist at full frenzy, unafraid to mount onscreen what others would judiciously edit out. Glover’s film is like that of the fever dream of a crazy person.” — Dennis Dermody, Paper Magazine
“ABSOLUTELY the most uncompromising and original thing I’ve seen. People try to compare it to the likes of surrealist hero Luis Buñuel and trailblazer Werner Herzog, but I say Glover has transcended even them. ” — Kelly O, The Seattle Stranger Weekly
A limited number of VIP tickets including best seats and a post-show meet & greet / book-signing will be available. ($50 Orchestra – Front + post-show Meet & Greet, $25 Orchestra – Side/Rear and Balcony, Ages 18+ — Adult Content)
