CHRISTINE DEITNER [] certified reviewer June 17, 2019
This show is brilliant, educational, and frankly terrifying. It starts off like a shot and never loses momentum with performances from an ensemble of actors that you just do not want to stop watching, no matter how much you might hate who they are portraying. They're so good, it might make you fall in love with the figures from recent history they portray - even if you walked in fully certain you could never even like them. It makes you think, questions your assumptions and has got this reviewer, in particular, wanting to look more closely than I already do at everything anyone says in Washington, no matter how good they might look [if you aren't already doing that, this play will give you reasons to]. ... 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

"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: full review

A very fun show. A highly entertaining glimpse into a part of this nation's political history. Following the rise of political strategist Lee Atwater, this show deftly entertains as it is making some valid points about the political stance of the people we elect to lead us. ... full review

This play was a beautiful and intense ride through the fascinating story of Lee Atwater. Ben Hethcoat was really wonderful, his charisma lights up the stage and it's so clear that he knows Lee Atwater inside and out, he fully commits to his role. There are some interesting thematic elements to Son of a Bitch that makes it very relevant today, and I think this play does an excellent job of portraying the true historical events in a theatrically engaging way. This is one of the best shows I've seen at the Fringe thus far, I highly recommend it. ... full review

Son of a Bitch is a brilliant piece of historical fiction that captures the spirit of the intriguing story of Lee Atwater and his role in the 1988 Presidential elections that resulted in George Bush‘s victory over the more popular Michael Dukakis. ... full review
