I Could Say More

"This play is just plain good."

"...dramaturgically sound, with a beautiful design of a summer home. And if you’re a gay man who’s ever thought about marriage, cheating on your spouse, why your friends (or you) are — STILL — wrestling with addictions or falling for “bad boys,’ or why your life still resembles Terrence McNally plays but is just a little bit different now but you can’t quite put your finger on how, then go see this."

"I Could Say More is a play that is essentially about family, the one we create, the one we long for, and the one we learn to accept."

"Thoughtfully written by Chuck Blasius."

"Playwright Blasius has a skill for creating fully believable and multi-dimensional characters, and the two-hour and twenty-minute play offers a full exploration of many complex and interesting personalities. The dialogue is sharp and honest, with plenty of humor and well-executed, delightfully cringe-worthy moments of conflict. Blasius is uniquely successful at creating depth and diversity amongst the characters, particularly in the representation of gay relationships and families. Whereas many contemporary plays still rely on stereotypes and overused tropes in writing gay characters, I Could Say More provides a refreshingly modern representation of sexuality in which there is no ‘normal,’ and those who haven’t caught up with the times are seen as backwards."

"I Could Say More paints a clever portrait of love, lust and friendship."

"...well written conversations that reveal a great deal about each character."

"I Could Say More does capture well this small community of friends and acquaintances in all its tiniest details, from the drunken, vulgarities of Lila, who always seems to offend someone, to the adolescent."

"It’s a constellation that doubles as a lesson in evolving gay culture."

"Amid the bickering and tumult, Keith McDermott is an oasis of quiet, gracefully understated as Skip. Monique Vukovic, as Rakel, and Brandon Smalls, as Jason, are also quite fine."

"Chuck Blasius's writing (he also acts and directs) is notable for its ability to blend wit and melancholy. Most impressive is the rapidity and clarity with which the script establishes all nine of the play's characters unique voices, as well as the dynamics of the relationships."

"The acting is uniformly solid."

"There is much to admire about I Could Say More, and huge credit is due to Chuck Blasius for writing, directing, and performing the new play. Scenic design by Clifton Chadick creates the perfect setting, and witnessing new, original work — that comes with more than a few laughs — always makes for a fulfilling evening at the theatre."

BOTTOM LINE: A new and original play about the rivalries and conflicts between family and old friends.

01/16/2014

"Playwright Chuck Blasius has stocked his tale with plenty of anxieties and many of them are ripe for dramatic exploration: the gay couple struggling to figure out what marriage means for them, the challenge of romantic love between a gay man and a straight woman, the adolescent confusions of a straight kid raised by gay parents."

"The production, particularly Clifton Chadick’s comfy-looking set, is nicely put together..."

"Much has been written about the 'invisible' warrior generation of gay men who watched half their friends die from AIDS and are now well into midlife, aged out of the clubs and bars, battling loneliness and depression. This is one of the few plays I have seen that dares to broach this complex subject."

"...the driving force behind this elaborate endeavor is no big-name dramatist. It’s the talented, slightly insane Chuck Blasius."

Playwright Chuck Blasius, whose two-actor 2002 play, We Were There, movingly charted the relationship of two gay men over a 30-year period — from the flashpoint of Stonewall to the grief and anger of AIDS to the outrage and numbness of Matthew Shepard’s murder — returns to the Off-Off-Broadway scene...
