Barnett Durang has a secret. No, not that secret. His widowed mother has long known he's gay. The secret is Barnett is getting married. At his mother's farm. In their small Louisiana town. She just doesn't know it yet. It'll be an intimate affair. Just two hundred or so of the most fabulous folks Barnett is shipping in from the "heathen coasts," as Mom likes to call them. But there are forces, both within this modern new family and in the town itself, that really don't want to see this handsome couple march down the aisle.
Lane’s latest... is even more chaotic than his debut—in a good way—with a multitude of wild yet fully fleshed out characters and a plot that never lets up. Hilarious moments blend perfectly with genuine emotional arcs, especially that of Chrissy and her journey to fully understand what unconditional love means.
Frothy if uneven ... Lane’s broad humor moves fast, with occasional winning lines, but most of the players read like caricatures and the more serious moments fall flat. While diverting, this feels a bit aimless.
