Great show, will be going back to see again, to digest more the second time around. The entire cast was comfortable with content and look, not sure I have ever seen such a cohesive cast.... full review

This is quite honestly the WORST piece of theatre I have seen in my entire lifetime. I am appalled, outraged, offended, mortified, disgusted, and outright sad. I feel robbed of an hour and a half of my life. The fact that some people are considering this a non-mockable piece of work leads me to question the sanity of Los Angeles theatre-goers. Anyone who thought this play was even remotely good needs to look to themselves and question why they are giving in to acting very far from truth. I started pitying these poor self-conscious souls the moment they stepped on that stage. Half of these actors clearly have never stepped foot on a stage before (hopefully, or I would seriously question your career choice). At the start of this play, it... full review

I really can't believe that this production is getting some of the other reviews it has gotten. It was a complete mish-mosh of a storyline, just jumping over huge sections of what would have been important details just to get to the part when the men would have to take off their pants, which was honestly completely unnecessary except for the fact that it's a sex addict production and seeing penises around the theatre all day is probably just kindling to that raging fire. There was evident racist themes, like the part where everyone just stops to twerk their heads to Beyonce. Yes, Beyonce is queen but why.... that had NOTHING to do with the rest of the show and was completely disorienting, as if the rest of the production wasn't already. I wi... full review

Again, I identified with the narrative quite a bit, so I found it to be a nice piece of theatre.... full review

Coming into this piece, I had no idea what to expect, nor did I know it was the 1st showing. I was taking off guard by the nudity but it did not bother me any. The characters were clear in their purpose, each having a role to play in telling this story of addiction and how each was affected by it and how each dealt with it. Overall, I enjoyed the play.... full review

This was some amazing theatre. I agree with what most of the reviews have said, it is a MUST-SEE. Its kind of sad and alarming that there were only 10 people or so in the performance I saw on a Friday night. Being a director myself, I want to give honest feedback: First, the elephant in the room. I can see how this show will make some people uncomfortable - addiction, sex, and nudity are very hard topics to approach. But these actors for the most part, where phenomenal, and very comfortable. Only one of the females look uncomfortable everytime the lead went near her or touched her. This story was put together very well, and educational without evening knowing it. I've never struggled with addiction - but it taught me a few things - ... full review

I felt the cast was well prepared and comfortable with all of their roles. I was surprised this was only the opening night and it makes me excited to see how much further they can go with their talents... full review
CARTER JAMES certified reviewer June 13, 2016
This is a show with EXTRAORDINARY potential. A show with a very vulnerable and powerful message. A very bold statement to say the least. I feel that the best is still to come from the cast and crew of this show and it certainly is a show for those who enjoy seeing convention challenged. As the actors grow in wisdom and stature, so will the show itself. ... full review

Must See, I hope they can turn it into a full 2hour stage production, or a movie as the director talked to me about.... full review
