It's a Wonderful Life, 70s Christmas Special, Starring the Fonz

Sex Farce
Watching Rob Nash morph from character to character at cell-phone speed is like watching Alexander Nemov perfect a somersault after a double flip in an Olympic floorshow. In his new solo show, Sex Farce, Nash handily embodies 14 characters and umpteen sound effects aided only by a chair and an offstage voice, but an unwieldy frame loses Nash's latest a couple of points. The play begins and ends in 2066, which does nothing but make Nash's job harder.
"...Rob Nash is a genius. Witnessing him morph from one..."

Through his Holy Cross Quadrilogy, a solo show that tracks three friends through four years at a Catholic high school, writer-performer Rob Nash takes us back to adolescence, re-creating that time of life in all its cruelty, uncertainty, agitation, and yearning, but also blessing it with an abundance of good humor and compassion.
"...happy never to return. What a wonder, then, is Rob Nash. He's not only willingly gone back to high..."

Holy Cross Sucks!
Multitalented Rob Nash has reshaped his "Holy Cross Quadrilogy" -- tracking three friends through four years at a Catholic high school in Houston -- into the evening-length Holy Cross Sucks!, and while the abridgment causes too much to happen too quickly, the result is still as funny and memorable as the best and worst of schooldays.
