"When Private Parts first hit the scene, everyone I knew had The Park memorized within a month and quoted from it constantly. Ashley's
series of non-sequitur images, fusing into a picture so lifelike that it never
quite added up, brought a mystery into music theater that smashed our previous
conceptions of the genre."
