KELLY MULLIS certified reviewer June 03, 2018
I had no idea what to expect from this show but I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was super cool that it was presented like a Hollywood Script. This show which is at the Hobgoblin Theatre in the heart of Hollywood is the perfect setting for this kind of story. It’s a truly “Hollywood-esque” story about dispicable characters living in LA and doing their thing, Just trying to survive in a superficial world. ... full review

If one is ensconced in 12-step world (as I am) the experience is both hysterical and uplifting. I howled with laughter through the play, much like I howl through my own recoveries. I found this production’s irreverence, profanity and rage strangely SOBER. It mirrors my own method of trudging through each day on the road of happy Destiny and coping with the confounding relentless revelations afforded by reality when one begrudgingly awakens to it. Watching the play was as potent as my last LSD trip, but kinder and more spiritually satisfying. I bow to the entire creative team behind this show: the splendid writers and director, as well to the wildly talented cast. Well-done! ... full review

Full disclosure - I was a member of Rewrites, the writing group that first saw the script for Bad Sponsor. I remember an immediate sizzle from the concept the first time we read it, and I certainly enjoyed seeing it finally come to life on stage. I would love to express further praise for the material and its presentation, but my long involvement in many read-throughs would be apparent. Well done, my friends.... full review
