Benefit Performance of "Love & Taxes"
Josh Kornbluth will be performing his hit one-man show "Love & Taxes," with all proceeds benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
"Love & Taxes" -- currently being adapted into a new feature film by the Kornbluth Brothers -- is the hilarious, yet also harrowing tale of a man who must get out of a really, really bad tax situation before his baby is born.
(By the way, if you can't make the show, you can still contribute toward Josh's upcoming bicycling century ride with the LLS's Team In Training by going here: http://pages.teamintraining.org/sf/solvang13/jkornbluth.)
"Josh Kornbluth isn't a loser but he plays one to hilarious effect. 'Love & Taxes' is a dizzying maelstrom of tax problems that offers food for thought and a touching little love story as well." -- Robert Hurwitt, SF Chronicle
"A balding, middle-aged guy standing alone on a stage describing his financial troubles with two hefty volumes of the U.S. Tax Code as his only props doesn't sound like a scintillating night at the theater. Yet Josh Kornbluth manages to weave his woes into an engrossing and humorous tale of redemption." -- June Bell, The Forward
"A REMARKABLY FULL EVENING OF COMIC THEATER. It's a rich comic brew that Kornbluth steeps with his unique brand of self-amusement and deprecation. Kornbluth's rich writing is well-served by David Dower's direction, which gracefully moves the story forward to Kornbluth's ultimate epiphany about and redemption from his tax problem." -- Andy Probst, American Theater Web
" Kornbluth allows audiences who go for intelligent comedy that blends hilarious self-examination with wry insight into the state of American politics, and tales of the vagaries of love between proudly neurotic people, to rejoice and throw off the chains of their mindless Hollywood oppression. The man who found a way to turn failing a Princeton math class and forgetting to mail 85 important letters for his lawyer boss into off-Broadway fame and a couple of independent films is back with his most polished and far-reaching work yet, the stunningly funny 'Love and Taxes.'" -- Lisa Drostova, East Bay Express
"Screamingly funny." -- Michael Scott Moore, SF Weekly
"it's not everyone who can turn revenue rulings and amended filings into the stuff of laughter. So if you want to find out how Kornbluth gets out from under a crushing pile of debt while staying true to his revolutionary values, you'll have to pull up a chair at this fiscal tour-de-force." -- Karen D'Souza, SJ Mercury News
