‘Adrienne Truscott’s new show A One Trick Pony (Or Andy Kaufman Is A Feminist Performance Artist And I'm a Comedian) brings back to the stage one of the most astute cultural observers of our time, and proves that she indeed has more than one trick.’
‘In the current climate, in which we’re constantly bombarded with a breakneck news cycle, the off-kilter rhythm of this show gives us a welcome chance to forego standard expectations and join Truscott in taking a step back to reset.’
‘Truscott's voice will be much needed for the foreseeable future. When women seem to be gaining and losing ground on a daily basis, Truscott again gives us the insight of a woman who has been taking notes all along.’

‘How does one describe the insanity that is Adrienne Truscott’s a One-Trick Pony? The show is a feminist masterpiece disguised behind dick-jokes and partial nudity…Funny, frank and incredibly candid, Truscott tells us about her poverty-stricken college period and how she raised the money to attend a pretentious sounding acting/movement course and the hilarious adventures that came about at that time in her life. Jumping between the story and how that moment shaped the current show, Truscott muses on feminism, femininity, comedy, dignity and everything else in between…It’s brilliant!’ ****
‘Weaving many threads together in one bizarre, culminating pose felt the most like Truscott channeling Kaufman, perhaps because it had that same flavor of absurdity and the same sense that the performer behind the persona is just delighted to be doing his or her work.
There were so many moments in this piece with such exuberance, and it made ONE TRICK PONY amusing and thought-provoking the whole way through. This show is not to be missed.’
