"...But I can’t help noticing that in some respects this two-hour monologue (with one intermission) is the theatrical equivalent of being cornered at a dinner party by that sleazy dude who you kinda want to run away from before he picks your pocket or boozily throws up on you. The stories Dean tells — having stoned sex with a celebrity’s daughter who demands he choke her into unconsciousness, or stealing pounds of pot from a drug dealer to fund his move to Los Angeles to find stardom — are genuinely shocking. The problem is, they’re recounted with a matter-of-factness that belies any dramatic adornment or emotional attachment."
