  1. I attended the June 16 performance as part of a Fathers Day gift. I am not an avid theater goer, but greatly appreciated the opportunity to witness this high-quality, impactful production. Regretfully, I realized afterward that we were not the best audience in that we were too quiet and serious at times, now seeing that other audiences laughed during moments of caricature. Best wishes for successful expansion. I hope your great talent will take you into myriad genres. You are well capable of creating and powerfully executing a wide variety of captivating productions.

    1. Hey, Larry. Thank you for attending my one-man show, “The Absent Father, the Wayward Son”–on Father’s Day! And you taking the time to reflect on the quality of the production and my talent are greatly appreciated, and accepted. It makes me smile, good brother. Take good care.

  2. Mr. Hughes,
    Not sure if my message I wrote last Tuesday was sent. Your performance was awesome. The cast, settings, offering Amos Temple, ReRe were all wonderful. ReRe could have done a B selection! Please add me to feature events, cseasley1@att.net.
    Thank you.

  3. A friend and I were lucky enough to experience your performance last night at The Guild. The play was warm, funny, profound and touching. I was taken to a place where I was entranced in the story, very emotionally moved and felt like I was the only person in the audience. The timing, lighting, music and stage presence were put together beautifully.

    I can’t thank you enough for putting together such a wonderful piece. My friend and I both very much can relate to the absence of a father figure. I know my buddy teared up a few times during the show. It was an event I will carry with me. I’ll be following your work hopefully seeing more things from you soon.

    Thank you for your contribution to an important subject. I’ll be taking my folks on Sunday and picking up your book.

  4. Show last night at the Guild and still thinking about DayDay this morning. Really cool describing to my boys how you shifted body and voice in to so many characters, effortlessly for our imaginations. Mostly, still wrapping my brain around what you said — this is your first full production. Leaves me sure we got a glimpse of greatness about to go bigger. That kind of writing — wow. Thank you!!

    1. Thank you, Yavonne! I love that you loved it. 9 more shows to go. Tell the family to bring the family!

  5. This was and excellent one man show. Mr. Hughes did an excellent job and I have made recommendations to friends to go and check it out.

    1. Right-on, Felicia! I appreciate that. Yes, invite the whole posse…only 9 more shows and I’m out!

  6. I have seen this play for the 1st time tonight and brought my 24 year old son with me. We enjoy it from start to finishe. Well done Mr. Hughes.

    1. How’bout that! Thanks, Amber. I appreciate you and your husband’s presence. I enjoyed you guys perhaps as much as you enjoyed me: The audience was awesome!

  8. The experience at Brandon’s one-man show was fulfilling, uplifting, humorous, refreshing, and honest to what many experience in their lives. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and would go again.

  9. When I say this is a must see it is…. My goodness this man has outdone himself w/this production…. I can’t wait to go see the next thing….

  10. Best performance I have seen , I will be back to see it again in August ! -Lora Robinson

  11. The story is brilliant. The delivery is outstanding. The introduction and transformation from character to character is spot on. A rollercoaster ride of every emotion, with comedic elements delivered just in time. I love DeeDee (the mother). She’s hilarious! One hell of a show!
