"The Performers is like an early Neil Simon farce with an X-rated vocabulary" ~ NY Times

A risque romantic comedy about two high-school friends - and the women in their lives - who reconnect at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas

When the night takes an unexpected turn and relationships are threatened, Chuck Wood, the hardest-working man in the business, steps in to lend a hand ...

Sex, romance and Barry Manilow inter-sect in this comedy about the ups and downs and ins and outs of love

"How has there never been a stage show about what happens at the Adult Film Awards? A send-up of porn stars and their pals, The Performers is totally profane and exhaustingly funny" ~ Entertainment Weekly

"The funny thing is that the show has a pure heart and a traditional feel-good message despite the waving of adult toys, simulated sex acts and language that would trigger a seizure in a network censor. Read has somehow found sweetness in porn" ~ Associated Press
