QUOTES OF NOTEBASH'd
“Great music and comic performances with a story that is ultimately quite dark, dramatic and moving. … Though it’s not a new show, Bash’d remains relevant and speaks to the complexities of the fight for equality.”
“BASH’d is furious, fast-moving, hip-hop entertainment! As one of the lyrics proclaims, “it’s Romeo meets Romeo,” complete with an ample supply of scatological language, swaggering attitude and a keen, often hilarious sense of observation about gay life.”
“BASH’d is brilliant … this is a show you don’t dare miss.”
“Audiences should be impressed by the passion of its convictions. The production … shows its rage, its grief, and its driven, heartfelt determination.”
—New York Times
“Besides being hugely imaginative, energized, and brash, BASH’d is also very, very funny.”
“The idiosyncrasies of gay life are displayed vividly (and sometimes in raunchy detail) as Craddock and Cuckow snap from character to character, creating a world full of aggressive drag queens, disdainful lesbians, macho conservative dads, wayward straight boys and one pitch-perfect, loving-but-cringing mother.”
