Press Quotes

"Candidly disarming and vividly confrontational, the routine Dance Me to the End of Love by transgender idol Lazlo Pearlman is as engrossing as it is challenging. A graceful, gentlemanly pas de deux with a coat stand, it defies description, blurring the boundaries between burlesque, boylesque and performance art. It may be another cheat (having been performed before), but nevertheless a fitting climax to the evening: acts as thought-provoking as this don’t often end with the public absorbed in widespread dancing."
~C.J. Lazaretti, Erotic Review

"Lazlo is an American performance artist and actor, currently residing in London. A dashing chunk of self-styled masculinity,
his original and slick acts draw inspiration from all corners of experience, from gender issues to dinner for two.
As accomplished in his one-man shows as he is on the cabaret circuit, his sexy, messy act is not to be missed."
-Outsider's Trust Erotic Awards

"[Lazlo] took us through the journey so easily, everything was flowing smoothly, making the reveal at the end almost like a painting."
~Susan Cook, playwright

back and forth so much it's a wonder he was able to fill out his census survey."

exploring gender and sexuality and making opportunities for people to work in new ways
makes him an exiting new contributor to the LA Arts scene".
- GLAMA award winner Barnes

In the "awe-inspiring" 'Girl Without Hands', Lazlo and his co-director "expertly transformed
the unusual playing area into a mystical domain, utilizing brick alcoves, docking platforms and barbed
wire fences as if they were always meant to be the backdrop for a fairy world."
