"...the feel-good tragedy of the year"

James Comtois on Glee Club. Thanks for the good word.

I, in turn, saw Infectious Opportunity, which I also read before seeing the production. In performance, the play is grim as hell. There's something unnerving, chilly and perverse about the main character. Not just because he's telling a terrible lie, but because he seems so removed from it. It's a real portrait of what it means to be a successful sociopath. Definitely check it out.
