Escapism, Well-staged, Strong voices, Campy, Fluffy

See it if you want to be entertained. Prodn works on sm stage (set projected). BBH grew on me, esply w its strg, energetic cast. Understudy at Sat mat

Don't see it if you dislike campy-ness/stories abt older women. Helps to know theater (in-jokes). Silly plot. Music is ok; good voices. Frothy fun, but long

Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Ambitious

See it if If you like a spoof of a musical with a lot of camp. Great fun and good acting in a great theater space.

Don't see it if Of you like bigger production musical or do not like spoof.

"She Belts. She Brawls. She’s a ‘Broadway Bounty Hunter.’ Annie Golden stars in a musical B-movie pastiche that lands in the gap between tribute and spoof."

"Theater veteran and 'Orange Is the New Black' regular Annie Golden plays a crime-fighting version of herself in the new musical from composer Joe Iconis ('Be More Chill')."

"'Broadway Bounty Hunter' Is the Nuttiest Musical of the Summer. The composer of 'Be More Chill' pens a show for musical-theater obsessives."

"Joe Iconis Exploits Annie Golden's Sterling Vocals in Grindhouse Tribute 'BROADWAY BOUNTY HUNTER'"

July 24th, 2019

"A combination of grindhouse-movie tropes, inside-Broadway gags, and a score that is pure hot buttered soul -- all in service of a female-empowerment theme -- 'Broadway Bounty Hunter' has a nutty originality even if it doesn't always know when to quit…everything [Golden] does is thoroughly delectable."

★★★★ "'Exploiting a Darling Character in Pursuit of Laughs.' It may be a fairly frivolous affair, but it sure is fun to see and nice to hear."

August 7th, 2019

"While 'Broadway Bounty Hunter' with its homage to the Blaxploitation and Martial Arts movies of the 1970's and 1980's will likely not attract the same audience as the sci-fi teen musical, 'Be More Chill,' it is an entertaining evening in the theater."

"The chance to see Annie Golden in her fiercely ridiculous (or ridiculously fierce) pursuit of justice is a bounty worth hunting all by itself."

August 9th, 2019

"This playfully loving musical is really a meta-love song to the gloriously talented Annie Golden, surprising even the most adoring fan with her powerful vocals and her extremely engaging presence...Accolades and standing ovations is exactly what she deserves for her 'Broadway Bounty Hunter.'"

July 23rd, 2019

"Well-meaning, cleverly designed and terrifically sung, 'Broadway Bounty Hunter' has a game and talented cast, a funky pastiche R&B score composed by Joe Iconis, Tony-nominated songwriter of Be More Chill, and a plot that couldn't be sillier….not quite the vehicle for Annie Golden that it could be."

“Annie Golden's vocal prowess is reason alone to see ‘Broadway Bounty Hunter.’ The high-decibel style (inspired by Blaxploitation and Chopsocky films) ebbs and flows, but the 50-year theater veteran slays.”
