“SCKBSTD is really about the American culture of paranoia; a fable that warns of the dangers of being too quick to rush to judgment, and allowing your emotions to cloud your reason… The themes explored here are topical, and important.”

“SCKBSTD, the ambitious theater project based on the songs of Bruce Hornsby, is a new musical with an old-fashioned feel about it. The theme of the outsider who shows up and impacts the lives of those he encounters is a classic in Southern literature… One wonders if Hornsby has read many short stories by Flannery O’Connor and Eudora Welty?”
