The New York Times
September 14th, 2023

“The songs are the highlights here. Bloom is especially good at puncturing emotion with surreal detail...More than blunt language — a tool that loses its sharpness with use — this absurdist vein effectively draws laughs, but it also underscores the show’s real subject: the often cruel arbitrariness of life.”

“Bloom is so good in her default mode, with a glint in her eye and dozens of curse words in her mouth, that she wins you over to her helter-skelter view of the world. She wins Death himself over too, or at least manages to get him to sing along with her about the cum trees.”

New York Theatre Guide

“The show instead leaves the impression that Bloom is rushing to process grief, joy, and the last decade of her career before the pop culture moment moves on. Perhaps with more room for reflection, her next show will strike a different chord.”

“ ‘Death’ is a hard sell in 2023, when so many of our feelings about the pandemic remain raw and unprocessed, stowed away in an emotional cupboard so that we can get on with the business of living. But if we must revisit Covid (and eventually, we must) I can think of few more delightful, hilariously tuneful ways.”

“Bloom knows her audience and plays to it...Maybe it is occasionally humorous, but it’s got nothing to do with wit. Whereas Bloom gives the ready impression of having the wherewithal for being impressively witty on the challenging subject, death.”

“With signature panache and zero regard for propriety, Bloom uses this mawkish fantasy to tie her shambolic musings into one neat, colorful, hilarious bow.”

Theater Pizzazz

“ ‘Death, Let Me Do My Show’ features the multi-hyphenate actress, writer, composer and comedienne in a very personal, very funny sort of one-person show...Its quickly-paced ninety minutes flew by and once out in the street, audience members like me were still laughing.”

Exeunt Magazine

“It’s not like we all didn’t learn this lesson in 2020, not like we haven’t all been dancing, fighting, and screaming in the face of death a lot lately. So it’s not like Bloom is taking us to new emotional territory—but she’s holding space for us to work through it with humor and heart. Sometimes that’s good enough.”
