Freud on Cocaine – Reviews

Stage Raw
STAGE RAW TOP 10DELIGHTFULLY DERANGED… A drug-fueled theatrical romp unlike any other… Though the style of humor is undeniably irreverent and audacious, this shedding of light on Freud’s struggle with substance abuse strangely offers something akin to empowerment for recovered or recovering addicts.” — Socks Whitmore, Stage Raw

Broadway World
GLORIOUS FUN… a crazy dude-bro stoner type comedy, a historical biopic, a Timothy Leary mind expansion drug trip, a hard-hitting addiction drama, and a razor-sharp social satire about Big Pharma… a remarkable achievement.” — Amanda Callas, Broadway World

The World Through Night Tinted Glasses
DELIGHTFUL… dizzyingly fun… a deliriously dysfunctional mess, both comedy and tragedy in equal parts.” — David MacDowell Blue, The World Through Night-Tinted Glasses

NoHo Arts District 
FUNNY, CLEVER, FASCINATING… gives us a direct and rather disturbing look into the mind of an overstimulated and wildly experimental pseudo and self-proclaimed expert of the human mind… hilariously relatable, heartrendingly real and intensely entertaining.” — Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros,

SUPERB… Instead of treating the subject matter as a sea of tears and sorrows, [playwright Howard] Skora uses his characters as conduits to deliver some of the funniest lines in the contemporary theatre scene… Make sure you don’t miss this gem.” — Joe Mosqueda, Glamgical
