So much fun that you barely notice the sincerity that they sneak in on you that grabs your heart and takes you dancing off to a joyful ending. ... full review

This show, "Come Back" totally blew me away. I didn't know what to expect. From the very first scene I was totally in. It was fun, funny, endearing, energetic. The actors were committed, hilarious and very convincing. This story of the relationship between an overpowering mother, Edie (brilliantly played by Amir Levi) and her adult son, Petey (exquisitely played by Demetris Hartman) is very cleverly written. Every aspect of it is very human. It is only augmented by the fact that they both work together in show biz. The push and pull of leaving the nest is at the same time very dramatic and very funny. It is handled with a lot of finesse. The music is beautiful, the voices are great, and the play on words and Broadway very wisely integrate... full review

I’ve watched Edie and Petey Stevenson sing their way through steamy scenes since they first appeared in a shorts show at the old Elephant Theatre over a decade ago. One of the reasons they’ve come back in so many forums is the humor, empathy and ingenuity of playwright Tony Foster. Amir Levi and Demetris Hartman launch Edie and Petey into comedy's stratosphere. Levi's legs are hurricanes of movement and emotion, and Hartman paints a color filled portrait of a young man who comes to realize his exasperating mother is also the best onstage partner he's ever had. Don't miss this show, because if this is the last time we will see Edie and Petey--and Levi and Hartman--together, it is indeed bittersweet. How many come backs does COME BACK! ... full review

Sacred Fools has mounted some amazing shows since moving to the Broadwater, and this production is one of their best.  Springing from the Serial Killers series, Come Back! has it all - a great story, interesting characters, and the perfect integration of music and words.... full review

What great fun! The cast was phenomenal, the writing impeccable and the direction was fun and engaging! Amir and Demetrius played off each other soooo well and I absolutely died over Andrew’s performance! When he first comes out on stage he is a completely different person to when he leaves. Overall a great time at the theatre was had!... full review
JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 29, 2019
Fun, touching, and a hell of a Broadway revue, Come Back! takes a couple of characters and drops them into a world of wonder, disappointment, and Broadway. If it sounds too close to home, it is. ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 29, 2019
This fun one-act was the perfect amount of fantasy and reality of the life between a Mother and Son. I wanted this to be so much longer than just one hour. It was so much fun! You could tell the amount of hard work put into this show. ... full review
