paraphrase Island City Stage, the blistering, dark comedy, The First
Step — Diary of a Sex Addict graphically depicts the story of Joe, a
gay sex addict, whose turbulent journey leads toward recovery. Written and
directed by Tony-nominated Michael Leeds, The First Step is funny,
poignant, and full of flights of fantasy, revealing a life rarely seen on the
stage. The play contains male and female nudity, strong language, and sexual
situations. (For info about the play and the theater, see Island City Stage.)
Truly inspired… A wry tale of sexual
obsession with inventive stellar moments.
Who’s ready for some comedy mixed with a
little bit of sex? … The First Step — Diary of a Sex Addict … will leave
your heart beating fast. … This show is funny, steamy, and full of
temptations that will have your fantasies going through the roof. Maybe your
body as well. — Florida Agenda
Joe's story [is told] with uproarious humor, disturbing psychodrama, and a freewheeling unpredictability — a nonlinear approach that befits the play's origins in the fringe festival circuit... The narrative jumps from flashbacks to Joe's present-day self-destruction (he has contracted HIV in the process) to a number of creative sketches. … The differences between gays and straights and between gay and straight sex addicts are revealed in an amusing, faux-Dating Game arrangement… [S]keptics of sex addiction's legitimacy [as a disease] will walk away with an understanding of just how debilitating [it] is. — New Times Broward / Palm Beach
