ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2013
Absolutely hilarious! Anyone who thinks there's no good theater in LA should go see this show. As should anyone who wants to fall off their chair laughing for 2 hours. ... full review
HEATHER - certified reviewer June 26, 2013
Poignant and unique, the show offers talented performers and a clever take on the peanuts gang. Totally worth watching!... full review
BRYAN BELLOMO certified reviewer June 22, 2013
Go, go, and go. A new work of raw force and hilarity. The kinetic Brendan Hunt lifts an equally impressive ensemble through an exciting, aggressive, powerful, brash, and absolutely dirty show. This was my first contact with the show, and I'm grateful it was remounted here at the Fringe. It is not to be missed. Highly recommend.... full review
JAY GARRETT certified reviewer June 24, 2013
Hilarious, biting and poignant, this is the show I would force people to watch when they say there's no real theater in Los Angeles. The cast is exceptional and each character fully realized in this update of a beloved comic strip that includes a healthy dose of life lessons and good grief. The play painfully examines the paths our innocent childhood characters rushed down in the time we've been apart. The skillful and subtle direction also forces the audience to insert their own lives and friendships into the retrospective crucible of good intentions and emotionally catastrophic relationships. Fun and thought-provoking, this is the best of the Fringe! ... full review

Best of the Fringe. Really. Go see this amazing, funny, touching, beautiful piece of theater. So so good. Great even. This is great theater. I've seen over 20 Fringe shows and this is so far and above most everything else out there. When you go to a Fringe show you expect to see a new thing somebody is trying out. This on the other hand is a fully realized play. Complete script that looks to have been extensively workshopped, a wonderful cast, highlighted by the amazing Brendan Hunt who is hard to look away from, his comedic timing, his raw emotional core, his physical skills, the depth he brings to this amazing character full of pathos is truly amazing. A heartbreaking laugh out loud performance is something you don't see every day. Ther... full review

A modern theatrical masterpiece. Well casted, strong actors and direction all around. I highly recommend this show!... full review

The Peanuts are grown up and gathering for a funeral. Expertly written, expertly performed. Directed with inventiveness and honesty, this show is simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking. But mostly hilarious. Brendan Hunt, who also wrote, gives a true tour de force performance as Pig Pen- now crazy and homeless, but still incredibly human. Hunt amazingly manages the crazed rants, deadpan asides, and emotional outbursts all while hula-hooping. (It's his cloud of dust, I believe). The entire ensemble is a knock out, especially Shannon Nelson, who is fantastic in every production I see her. Perhaps the end goes on a bit long (this was slated at 2 hours but ran 2.5 with a late start and intermission)- but I don't care. I am nearly 50 shows de... full review

Even better than everyone said! This show was hilarious and touching and perfect. I loved every minute of it! Just spectacular!... full review

The Peanuts Crew like you've never seen them before! Unless you saw the original mounting of this amazing show. Wow! I saw this at Sacred Fools in its first incarnation and it blew my mind. Incredibly funny and poignant (I'm a fan of both at the same time - which this show achieves time and time again) with just the right amount of madass crazy thrown in for good measure. Brendan Hunt is a freaking genius. Now for the restaging at the Fringe Festival. Double WOW! The show has been tightened here and rewritten there and it just sings. Or Dub Steps. The cast is still brilliant, the direction impeccable, and Brendan Hunt is still a MAD GENIUS. The fact that he can hula through an entire show - half the time naked - is a testament to his abs... full review
BRUNO OLIVER certified reviewer June 23, 2013
I saw and loved the first production at Sacred Fools. This one is leaner and really clips along without losing any of the big humour.. and really heartfelt moments. I am 100% positive that you will be hearing about this show come award time later this year... so now is your CHANCE to see it!... full review
