Publishers WeeklyRomance almost eludes a desperate TV soap opera producer in Salvatore's dizzy, bubbly debut. Manhattanite Steven, recently dumped, is searching for PRM (Potential Relationship Material) but alas, the pickings are slim, and when he finally finds someone he's into, he's pelted with conflicting advice from his skeptical pal, his mom, and his best friend. As Steven searches for his one and only and melodrama after melodrama unfolds (it's surely no coincidence that Steven works on daytime dramas), playwright Salvatore proves that a giddy gay romance can be as silly and airy as its chicky forbears, but it has the same weak spots: terminal chattiness, cloyingly self-aware narration, and plot-as-afterthought. Salvatore's got wit to spare, but it needs a stronger vehicle.
