Steambath – Reviews

Los Angeles Times
A PIQUANT BLACK COMEDY… It’s about time somebody revisited Bruce Jay Friedman’s ‘Steambath.’… its undiminished cheekiness is a welcome distraction in dark times.” — F. Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times

People’s World
FUN… God is the all-knowing, all-seeing, middle-aged funky Puerto Rican named Morty played to perfection by the well-known comedian/actor Paul Rodriguez… Splintering through all the ribald joking and the atmospheric steam shines the clear light of existential questioning about life.” — Eric Gordon, People’s World

LA Splash
HILARIOUS… uproarious updated jibes which will strike home in today’s political climate… Director Ron Sossi decided to keep the essence of the play intact, including a few politically incorrect, racist, sexist, and sometimes insulting – but very funny – lines…. For a hysterical, tongue-in-cheek evening at the theater, STEAMBATH fills the bill.” — Elaine Mura, LA Splash

Haines His Way
OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY… Don’t miss this opportunity to see this time capsule gem of a comedy sure to offend everyone.” —Rob Stevens, Haines His Way

The Fume of Sighs
ENTERTAINING… gives you more food for thought than what you would expect.” — Dena Burroughs, The Fume of Sighs

Bonnie Priever Curtain Up

LYRICAL, AMUSING AND TIMELY… another top notch Odyssey collaboration that will not disappoint. Go see it; you’ll be well rewarded” — Bonnie Priever Curtain Up

Theatre Notes
RECOMMEND[ED] AS AN UNUSUAL THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE… the cast is excellent… handsomely mounted” — Paul Myrvold, Theatre Notes

Observations Along the Road
LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY” — Daniel Faigin, Observations Along the Road

LA Media West
PROVOCATIVE… [God is] exquisitely played by well-known stand-up comedian Paul Rodriquez, who lights up the stage with his megawatt presence… philosophical ideas put forth by the playwright are deftly revealed as the characters review their lives and come to surprising revelations.” — Beverly Cohn, Santa Monica Mirror and LA Media West
