ANDREW BURGER certified reviewer June 18, 2017
It started a bit slow, but once the groundwork was set, it became very interesting and engaging. It was a great story about relationships and how the love can persist even through bad decisions and rough patches in life.... full review
BILL BERRY uncertified reviewer June 19, 2017
By far the best acting I've seen at the fringe. The director kept the dialogue crackling and the story accelerating. Don't miss this!... full review

YEAH! Gritty, full on, blood-sweat-and-tears-in-yo'-face-theatre!! Kickass work from the cast of MoFo W/The Hat. They work it, giving you a solid theatrical experience. This piece has depth, gravitas, grabs you by the cohones and takes you through a heart-wrenching theatrical rollercoaster of emotions. It has solid direction and a uniformly strong cast who play the junkies, abusers, abused and highly dysfunctional group of characters who are doing their best in life. The characters learn a little, grow a little, bounce around in their pain & try to better themselves. MoFo is a carefully constructed production that deserves to get an extended life. Great work!... full review

It started off with a laugh and the story sucks you right in. The story is gritty, real, and makes you feel like you’re eavesdropping on their conversations. I think a lot of people can relate to the dysfunctional relationships portrayed and the situations that arise because of it. The guy who played Julio was hilarious; he should have his own TV show! At the end of the play I cried a little, it really touched me. I highly recommend it. ... full review

One of the best fucking productions at the Fringe. This crackling, compelling play is given star treatment by director Tony Gatto, who uses the intimate space beautifully.... full review
ASHLEY STEED stage raw and la bitter lemons certified reviewer June 22, 2017
Recently released from prison, Jackie (Jorge-Luis Pallo) comes home to his longtime girlfriend, Veronica (Fayna Sanchez), with some gifts to celebrate a new job. Things are going to be different for them. But then, when he spots an unfamiliar hat on the table, he goes into a rage — just who is the motherfucker with the hat? Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis’s richly profane (and profound) 2011 Tony-nominated play is given an excellent run with a sharp ensemble. Pallo brings both the machismo and desperation as Jackie. Sanchez is fierce as Jackie’s addict girlfriend Veronica. Nelson Delrosario as Ralph D — Jackie’s AA sponsor and best friend — depicts a man narrowly focused on his own worldview, and who is eager to help Jackie (though not ne... full review
