FLAMINGO & DECATUR

A World Premiere At Theater Wit

1/4-2/18/18

HERE'S WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT FLAMINGO & DECATUR

 “In ‘Flamingo & Decatur,’ a most winning tragicomedy of Vegas manners, Todd Taylor homes in on all those generally unexamined aspects of the fabled city...Under the shrewd direction of Kevin Christopher Fox, both the play, with its echoes of Sam Shepard’s ‘True West,’ and the company, deserve a big welcome mat.”

--Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"Funny and smart...If you spend some of your leisure time staring at decks of cards, you’ll immediately intuit that the author knows whereof he writes." 

--Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
