Norman…Is That You?


Time Out says

Betrayed by his wife, the boorish manager of an Arizona dry-cleaning establishment is dealt a second blow when he discovers his son Norman living in a hideous Los Angeles apartment with a camp boyfriend. After ninety minutes of shouting, pouting, door-slamming and homespun philosophising - adapted with a black cast from a Broadway flop - one can only marvel at the continuing, condescending, sitcom attitude to homosexuality. Foxx and Bailey bluster helplessly as the parents; the statuesque Dobson, as a hooker brought in to straighten Norman out, looks on in saucer-eyed incomprehension; only Wayland Flowers, a manic puppeteer, manages to transcend the material with an energetic display of self-parody.
