Wilson's Burn This Opens at the HCAC
by Trish Vignola - Sep 12, 2010

Why would someone even want to revive this show? It's insufferably long. It clocks in at three hours, not counting an intermission.

They also completely lack dimension. Openly-gay Wilson actually made the character of Larry, a homosexual, a complete and utter punch line. You can argue that Burn This could be an exercise in 'phoning it in.' (more...)
