Holy Cross Sucks

It's Rob Nash, y'all, back at last! The man returns to the Vortex with his terrific solo show, based on his own adolescence at a Jesuit high school in Texas. Yes, the multitalented theatre savant and Off-Broadway sensation works those 1980s pop-culture references for all they're worth in this coming-of-age tale, performing an array of unforgettable, eminently quotable characters and situations both poignant and ridiculous and so true to life they'll make you laugh even as you squirm with recognition. The cast includes “the punk,” “the homo,” “the fat kid,” “the virgin,” “the nerd,” and “the slut” – and, that's right, the entire cast is Nash himself, directed by Jeff Calhoun, no less, the man who brought the world Disney's Newsies. Remember how much high school sucked? That's how much this show doesn't, at all.
