”SIZE MATTERS" received its world premiere at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati in May 2014. Directed by Tony Award-winning former Cincinnati Playhouse Artistic Director Ed Stern, the show ran for three weeks; garnering outstanding reviews, standing ovations, and sold-out performances. In 2015, the show was filmed before a live audience at the historic Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee and is available for streaming on Amazon Prime. "SIZE MATTERS" has received productions around the United States and Raymond continues to perform the show whenever scheduling permits.
A unique and personal one-man show that audiences find hilarious and deeply moving, “SIZE MATTERS” connects with audiences through a refreshing mix of comedy and honesty about body issues that we don’t usually, hear from men. When asked in an interview why he performs such a personal show, Raymond responded —
“On opening night, I met a man who had lost over one hundred pounds. He was too choked up to talk. His wife hugged me and said, ‘He wants to say thank you for explaining his life to me. He couldn’t say it himself, but you said it for him’. That’s why I want to share my story.”
The show hits home for anyone who’s struggled with confidence. It’s a date night that brings you closer. It’s a show that starts family conversations. In every city, we’ve had patrons come back to bring family members or friends that need to have that conversation. Come see the show and find out for yourself if size really does matter.
