LARRY DAVIDSON certified reviewer August 10, 2021
The show was so much fun. Lenny and Lori had distinct performing styles and the synergy of both performers created a wonderful combination. The show was funny while addressing some very serious personal revelations. Overall the show was a delight.... full review

Wow. What a show. SO many words come to mind - and yet there are none that could truly capture my feelings. Sugar and Shit managed to elicit a range of emotions simultaneously - I didn't know whether to laugh, cry, feel angry or excited. The show left a massive mark - certainly one that will keep you thinking for days after the fact. ... full review

A Compelling, Courageous, self Compassionate journey of two women who ironically are more similar than different. Caged. Meeting the naked underbelly of their remembered narratives with bravery and presence and without apology. It’s a sad piece, un-healable soul woundings that sort out in their lives as lived to survive and come to some acceptance in the understanding of life as it was and life as it is. I felt the actresses deeply. The Hudson Theater and Cafe is a joyous bright light in a world overfilled with Sugar and Shit. Sugar ‘n Shit Installment #2 takes the original spine of the first show and unleashes a fresh ferocity in the veracity of the memoirs. From the low lights and Sugar’s voice from the opening scene to Lori’s explo... full review

The vulnerability and raw emotion is what has this show stand out from the crowd. From Lennie’s total acceptance of her naked body to Lori’s final communication to her adoptive mother this production had me on the edge of my seat. The interaction between these two as they together first expose then heal the traumas of their past is inspiring and I find myself wanting to set myself free too. Can’t wait to see what they create next. ... full review

Sugar and Shit was at times uncomfortable to watch and the content was heavy while having moments throughout that evoke nervous laughs and compassion for the characters or even anger toward the people who treated them as “less than”. The workshop after the show was a delightful and inspiring addition. Thank you for the experience and vulnerably sharing your stories!... full review

A provocative show about what makes something sweet or profane in our lives - how the goodness of love and sweetness of sugar may be evident in candy but not in real life as people don't know how to treat each other with love. Sugar's comment that working as a strip club dancer allowed her to examine men in a laboratory of human hearts. Quite eye-opening.... full review

I was blown away by Sugar and Shit due to the concepts of the sugar and shittyness of life. It spoke to everything I believe about feminism, courage and expressing yourself. I was also really intrigued the production explored the darker side of the story. The attention craving, the suppression we as women face, the daddy issues that just don't seem to go away but rather grow stronger with time. I truly felt my imagination could run wild with this story. The bold uninhibited choices of Lenny Langley dancing and the way the music was incorporated into the production was powerful. The way the artists explored freedom was moving. Then when Lori Hoeft told her story as the Shit the contrasts in emotions were so relatable. She made me cry. I'm p... full review
