The Seattle Repertory kicked off its 2011 season with Humor Abuse – a well-crafted engaging biographical production which explores one man’s search for independence, meaning and identity in the shadow of his larger than life, vaudeville-legend father and life growing up in San Francisco’s illustrious Pickle Family Circus. Humor Abuse, written by Lorenzo Pisoni and directed by Erica Schmidt, explores the universal experience of growing up, finding oneself and making peace with imperfect parents but wisely does so by evoking empathy for young Lorenzo while avoiding syrupy melodrama.
