Review of Joe Gulla’s “The Bronx Queen” (Chapter One)
“Part of what makes the show stand apart among the many titles in the gay-youth-memoir genre is the richness of detail in Joe Gulla’s characterizations. He brings to life a whole borough-full of brash, funny family members, neighbors and friends. (Well, they’re funny in retrospect, anyhow.) The performance succeeded largely because Gulla came off as such a warm and wise storyteller, brimming with good will and honest reflection. Among the words that flashed on a screen above the stage before the show began were repetitions of the message “You don’t know me” — a phrase that Gulla spoke more than once during the course of the evening. After spending an hour or so with him, though, you might find yourself wishing that you DID, in fact, know him.” — Mark Dundas Wood, BistroAwards.com
Review of Joe Gulla’s “Faggy at 50” (Chapter Two)
“Outbursts of laughter for which television sitcoms would kill are bridged by stillness evoked by moving dialogue! Writing is pithy and economic. Themes originate in one story and deftly tie up during another later on, a kind of literate cat’s cradle. Well timed punch lines are crackerjack. Almost every narrative choice is relevant. Without a shred of rancor or shtick, Joe Gulla’s “Faggy at 50” is as rewarding as it is entertaining. One leaves grinning, ready to buy the show’s creator a drink.” — Woman Around Town, NYC
