Noted L.A. Monologist, HARRY HART-BROWNE, says: “BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL I LOVE YOUR LECTURE. Thank you so much for doing it. So many plays and people and history and details I had not known about. Fabulous photos! Such a rich and sparkling legacy. Truly holy. Bless you all. You are such a gifted speaker. Totally fascinating and entertaining. You endure, dear Robert Patrick O’Connor, unlike cream of celery soup and striped toothpaste! Much love.”

DUANE OTIS BOYER says: I have seen this lecture twice in person and once on video, it is remarkable look into the beginnings of off off broadway and ‘gay’ theater, and Mr Patrick delivers it with humor, deep insight and bombastic energy.

WILLIAM MANN of GayTheatre.Com says: I didn’t know this man at all. This man I’ve seen posting in cyberland forever. I didn’t know his talent. I didn’t know his past. I certainly didn’t know his history…and what I really didn’t comprehend was that this ‘history’ was not only pertinent to the generations that followed…but as a gay man involved in the theater, this history was
pertinent to ME!
