Praise for Adam’s 2014 FringeNYC show The Mushroom Cure:
Winner – Overall Excellence Award for Solo Performance
Time Out: ★★★★ “A true-life tour de force” (Critic’s Pick)
New York Times: “Strauss mines a great deal of laughter from disabling pain”
Adam Strauss’s work has been called many things, mostly adjectives. He won the 2014 FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award for Solo Performance and the Leffe Beer Craft Your Character storytelling competition. He’s lost too many things to mention here. Adam rose phoenix-like from the hardscrabble, Volvo-lined streets of Newton, Massachusetts in the midst of that city’s crippling hard cider epidemic, defying those who said he’d never amount to more than a cosmetic surgeon or corporate attorney.
