Dr. Bradley’s Fabulous Functional Narcissism: The Psychoanalytic Odyssey of a Once Glorified Chorus Boy
Westport’s own Bradley Jones, a self-described budding theatre queen at the age of six, and later a high school star of the Staples Players, journeyed from Connecticut to the Great White Way to pursue his Broadway dreams. Thirty-five years on, Jones dons his top hat once again to recount through songs and stories the hilarious and moving coming-of-age story of a precocious childhood, negotiating the 1970s as a gay teen, ten years on Broadway in A Chorus Line in the throes of the AIDS pandemic, right through the present and his successful, post-theater career as a psychoanalyst and author in New York City. The music of Broadway pulses through the show, from Arlen and Sondheim to Gershwin and beyond.
"A most complex, detailed, thought-provoking, whimsical, articulate, accurate, truthful and honest, lively, hilarious and touching 70-minute-long autobiographical adventure.” - Myra Chanin, Theater Pizzazz
"Dr. Bradley’s Fabulous Functional Narcissism is a fascinating, wildly entertaining show.” - Michael Barbieri, Nitelife Exchange
