--Do Not Miss the Main Attraction produced by three-time Pulitzer winner Edward Albee in Houston in May 1993--also produced from January to February 1996 at the Attic Theatre in Los Angeles and reviewed in Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Dramalogue and LA Reader.  Albee called it "anarachic, rambunctious and often brutally funny."  On January 12, 1996, Scott Collins of Los Angeles Times wrote:  ". . . at its best, the play reveals a deep, sometimes painful understanding of the destructive rivalries and buried resentments that can tear families to shreds."
