“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?”
– The Daily Press

“A dark and paranoid version of small-town America, SCKBSTD is a highly ambitious effort to create what has become a rare find in theater—a musical with a plot or, at the very least, a story line… SCKBSTD is the most ambitious and challenging new work of the current theater season. Broadway hasn’t had a show like it in a while.”
