Waves on Waves (formerly Your Operator, formerly Thornton) frontman Kevin Thornton is kicking off his new one-man show next weekend at Bongo After Hours Theater. It's called Sex, Dreams, & Self-Control, and according to Thornton, it's:
...a humorous yet touching coming-of-age tale about a young, Midwestern man meeting his conservative family, God, and sexuality head on. This one-man show moves the audience through hilariously embarrassing adolescent anecdotes to the painful trek of his teenage years and beyond. Told through a unique mix of storytelling, stand-up comedy, and music, this is a 90-minute tour de force for star and writer Kevin Thornton. Though the story is personal, its themes are moving and universal.
Catch Thornton working through all the attendant tensions of him and Him on Jan. 22, 23 & 24 at Bongo at 9 p.m. For a preview, check out clips here.
