David’s Friend is a fast-paced multi-media show is a celebration of friendship, fun, freaks, fag hags, youthful passion, changing times, aging, emotions, memories, music and Manhattan. David’s Friend is a coming of age story, a love story, a loss story, and a New York story, a story we all know and experience in some way, and, as David would say, “a story that just gets better with the telling.”

“The show delivered on all fronts -- it's funny, it's nostalgic, it's touching, it's poignant and it's smart.”
~ Kenneth in the 212
“…in her stage memoir “David’s Friend” she conjures up a vivid portrait of a carefree, hedonistic era that seeped away tragically and wrenchingly.”
~ Marc Miller, NY Theatre Guide
“The beauty of “David’s Friend” is, you didn’t have to be there. Burns was, and she brings it alive for the rest of us.”
~ Marc Miller, NY Theatre Guide
