Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Originally from New Orleans, Sean Patton is a comedian, writer, storyteller, and performer based in New York.
In his new hour show, comedian Sean Patton dives ass-first into his psyche to see just what he’s made of. He may be a moron, but he knows it and owns it, which makes him less of a moron than you.
And he didn’t mean to call you a moron, he just gets defensive and sometimes speaks without thinking. This is just one of the many stupid things he does that make him the brilliant mess that he is.
L.O.U.D. is proof that intelligence cannot exist without stupidity, and that acronyms are hands down the best way to name a show.
