STEPHEN BEITLER certified reviewer June 30, 2019
Effortlessly woven dialogue merges with a fascinating story of our own steps to where we are as a country. This piece of story-telling gave me a little window into a reality of what if... what if just a few people had made a few different choices? What if just one person had somehow stood their moral ground? And a piece of art that leaves me asking questions, instead of wanting answers, is a piece of art that has the chance of shifting the way we see. I was obviously moved by this story, and I think you will be, too. ... full review

A thoughtful, well designed, executed and superbly written piece that blends history into our contemporary world. With strong performances and a sharp bite that has stuck with me days later. It's a show I won't forget because of how wonderful and insightful it is.... full review

Invigorating to see a period drama set when I was 2 years old. As a historian, who works on the U.S., and a politically engaged adult, who took an interest in politics beginning with GWB's presidency, I found this narrative helped fill a gap in my knowledge (after my period of expertise but before the awakening of my consciousness).... full review

What a fantastic show, and so well deserving of Pick of the Fringe! Lucy Gillespie slays again with hilarious, sharp writing after her Prozorov hit last Fringe. Billy Ray Brewton keenly directs these excellent actors who bring energetic hilarity to the Broadwater stage. Ben Hethcoat and Luke Forbes make quite the team, with excellent acting chops from both. Hethcoat truly becomes Atwater, transcending the role. Delicious moments between Hethcoat and Fringe vet Chloe Dworkin - whose beauty only adds to her poignant scenes. The acting is quite superb throughout, with McElwee bringing it home as Jim. A marvelous piece.... full review

"The cast is bolstered by Lucy Gillespie’s hardball script and director Billy Ray Brewton’s fly-on-the-wall gravitas." Read the full review here: http://fringereview.co.uk/review/hollywoodfringe/2019/son-of-a-bitch/... full review

Smartly written, funny, and unsparing in its reimagining of Lee Atwater and the Bush 41 presidential campaign. ... full review
