The one person show is always an interesting exploration for the artist. In this case David Pevsner lets it all hang out with his personal story of identity as a gay youth, as an openly gay man, and his theatre career over the years.


“Musical Comedy Whore” uses song and narration to tell Pevsner’s real-life stories about relationships, gay sex exploration, working as an escort to pay the bills, and his own self discovery of owning everything he has done in his past, good and bad.


The one person show was performed in front of a live audience and recorded as such. With only a piano accompaniment, the film is focused on Pevsner and he is a captivating performer and songwriter.

I chuckled at parts but I did not find it overly funny. If anything, I found it an interesting airing of a performer's ups and downs over his personal life and career. Sex is brought up time and time again but it serves a purpose - of Pevsner trying to find and even justify his body image issues when he was younger, and the power of sexual control.


I admire any artist that can put together a one person show like this that is raw and entertaining at the same time. “Musical Comedy Whore” may not be for everybody but it is a well done performance.


Best,
