Second Thought Theatre: Straight White Men at Kalita Humphreys Theater
3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75219
Nancy Churnin Recommends
Two brothers and a father pressure a third brother, Matt (Thomas Ward), to live up to his “potential” in Young Jean Lee’s 2014 off-Broadway play at Second Thought Theatre. But what does it mean to live up to one’s potential? Are straight white men “losers” if they aren’t leaders of their domain? Matt makes a case for living at home with his dad and doing temp work while he slowly pays off his student loans. Christie Vela’s direction puts a turbocharged spin on the macho clashes between Brandon Potter’s Jake and Drew Wall’s Drew. In a way, the show is a reminder that love doesn't always require “fixing” others. Sometimes the best expression of love is love.
