JANE FLEISS-BROGGER certified reviewer July 23, 2023
The show was fantastic. Brendan Hunt's energy, enthusiasm and connection to the audience was uplifting and inspiring. The show was funny and authentic and moving. As a fellow Beatles enthusiast I was carried away completely by Hunts original take and ability to completely involve everyone in his personal lifelong obsession. He is a wonderful performer.... full review

The show was touching & funny & incredibly enjoyable. Brendan is a wonderful storyteller, who is a master of his craft. His big personality is so much fun to experience.... full review
TREVOR REECE certified reviewer June 17, 2023
This was such a beautiful piece. The Beatles as a familiar connection is all too common, but Brendan’s unique perspective leads to a wonderful story about the complicated love between parent and child. I was fortunate to see this during Previews with a warm audience, so Brendan was taking some real chances in feeling out the structure of the show. I cannot wait to see what it will look like as a fully produced performance.... full review

While it says this is a ‘work in progress’, it was stellar. I laughed. I nearly cried (got teary-eyed, for sure). I was entertained. And as a Beatles lover/fan, this all made perfect sense. ... full review
DRINA DURAZO certified reviewer June 15, 2023
A funny, moving, and deeply personal piece that gives great insight into a flawed mother-son relationship, with The Beatles playing a subliminal but pivotal role in the journey. ... full review
EMILY CLARK certified reviewer June 12, 2023
Brendan has always been an endlessly compelling performer and even a work-in-progress by him is so worth seeing. "The Movement You Need" is about youth, family, love, childhood, growth, acid, na-na's, and the Beatles - and I loved every moment of it. I definitely can't wait to see how this piece develops! ... full review
