Youngblood Recommends... Buddy Cop 2

I saw the best show this weekend, you guys. Uber hip downtown company, The Debate Society, knocked the ball out of the park again with Buddy Cop 2. Even if the play weren't amazing (it is) I would suggest you see it based solely on actress/writer Hannah Bos's hair.

Check it:

That is not a wig, y'all.

As funny and ironic as the title and marketing tactics are, they belie what is actually a very thoughtful, touching comedy. I actually cried a little at the end. Don't you loove it when plays are good? Me too.

Two cops . . . in the kind of quiet little town where a kid dreams of growing up to be a fireman. Or a racecar driver. Where the only question you ask yourself at the end of the day is if you’re gonna knock back your cold one at Swanky’s, Spanky’s or Zingers. A town where neighbors pitch in to help neighbors in need. And where if you wake up in the middle of the night . . . you should keep your eyes closed. Because the man in red is there in the corner. Watching you. Smiling at you with his yellow eyes and black teeth. Best to pretend you’re still asleep.
