Critics Love WHAT TAMMY NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT GETTING OLDER AND HAVING SEX

Tammy WhyNot / Lois Weaver in her 'mmm' shirt.

"The lines between musical revue, variety show, and daytime talk show converge in this truly unique piece of theatre... The highlight of the show is the cast of 17 people in their 70's and 80's, called the WhyNets, that Tammy met by conducting research about sex and aging at several retirement homes in New York... Their willingness to talk about their sexuality so openly is both life affirming and inspiring... leaves us with an overwhelming sense of compassion that is well worth the cost of admission."
- Ken Kaissar, Theatre is Easy
"These New Yorkers are black, white, Latino, and Asian; they're gay, straight, widowed, celibate, and (surprisingly) libertine. But most of all they're hot — because experience always is.... Carmen and Jorge show off salsa moves. Tom reads his stunning poem. A geriatric couple recommends daily lovemaking. "I want to be that badass," said a twenty-something woman sitting near me."
- Tom Sellar, The Village Voice
"Lois Weaver brings fun for all ages...The hour-long variety show is a charmer--a little sugar, a little spice. Weaver doesn't so much break the theatrical fourth wall as completely ignore it...There's no resisting Tammy."
- Eva Yaa Asantewaa, InfiniteBody
