Joey Folsom used his musical and acting talents to deliver varied performances. He brought a poetic intensity to his role as a Bukowski-loving slacker in Upstart’s production of The Aliens. In Hank Williams: Lost Highway at WaterTower Theatre, he channeled the country crooner’s stage presence while inviting us to witness the man’s inner demons. He didn’t need to rely solely on an instrument, though. For a staged reading of the play Cock, Folsom was memorable even with just a script in his hands.
