Dangerous When Wet Solo Show Wins 2017 FRIGID Festival Audience Choice Award
As in the book, Jamie, faces his three most defining relationships—booze, sex, and his Texas tornado of a mother Mama Jean—in the darkly comic tour de force. With dazzling wit and unflinching honesty set against a multi-media backdrop of evocative photos, home movies, vintage postcards, and music haunted by Peggy Lee’s “Is That All There Is?”, Jamie tells the story of wrestling way too close to—and later loose from—booze, sex, and his bombastic, adorable Mama Jean.
Praise for Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother written & performed by Jamie Brickhouse & directed by David Drake
"It’s a mighty piece masquerading as a small one-man show. Jamie Brickhouse is a consummate storyteller full of southern charm and NYC erudite sophistication. He’s a stunning performer that makes you feel so comfortable walking through his memories that after the show you feel you have a new friend. He’s definitely the kind of performer who makes hard work look effortless on stage." –NY Theater Guide
“Dangerous When Wet is a sure thing....an emotionally packed show where there is never a dull moment.... If you see only one show in the Frigid Festival, Dangerous When Wet is a great choice.” –“Best Bet” Theater is Easy
“Jamie Brickhouse can do it all: storyteller, memoirist, actor, mimic, narrator, dancer, comedian and, best of all, survivor....This is an especially well-done one-man-show: intelligent, literate and rib-tickling funny. Go see it, you’ll love it. The laughs come at such a rapid pace that you won’t shed a tear until maybe the end.” –Hi! Drama
