Amato plays his urgent material "just for kicks" and "for
keeps," and this absolutely fearless and volatile mix of clowning
and erudite commitment gives his work a life like nobody else’s.
Breaking rules we might not have been aware of (or alert to our
allegiance to), Pain Plus Thyme is a hard-hitting,
clear-eyed critique of culture, as well as a "romp" through
preserves both political and personal.
