At Home with Dick, approximately an hour and a half of the songs and memories of a funny and very talented man with (these days) white hair, a ready smile, and a brace of clever keyboards, is the sort of thing that's implied by the very best interpretation of the phrase "Keep Austin Weird."
-Wayne Alan Brenner, The Austin Chronicle
It's one of the least pretentious, most arresting theater experiences I've ever encountered.
-Michael Barnes, Out and About
We were touched and frankly, impressed by all of the ground Price covered: the guilt-ridden frustration of dealing with a demented person, the painful awareness of a loved one's loss of dignity, the embarrassed amusement at an octogenarian's resurgent sexual desire, the revulsion of visiting a nursing home for the first time...
-Julie Holden, Austinist
