Daddy IssuesWhile I can't complain about Aguero's effort as a form of self-help therapy, it lacks the theatrical craftsmanship of the best monologues. Aguero deploys his subwoofer rumble of a voice in a rapid-fire bass monotone that's nearly hypnotic; if I were producing him for an NPR storytelling show like The Moth (where he's performed in New York), I'd lay an instrumental track behind him to keep the audience awake. I'd also streamline the script and strengthen the arc; stories are stuffed in one after the other with little more than "then, a few weeks later" to connect them. Aguero's earned my respect for his personal journey, but empathy aside, with so many great one-man shows at Fringe, Daddy Issues doesn't quite win my recommendation.
