"How can a satire possibly be more farcical or bizarre or outrageous than the president’s own words and actions? Spoiler alert: It can’t. Here, a lot of the jokes are bad and the marks are easy...There are a lot worse ways to spend a Saturday night than laughing and grieving together. The performers are fine singers and fizzy delights, with Mr. Spitaletta and Ms. Weinberger emerging as particularly skillful impersonators...It wasn’t impeachment, but it wasn’t so bad." Full Review
"As a serving of fresh red meat for fed-up liberal theatregoers–if that's not redundant–it packs a fair amount of bite, and all involved are dedicated to keeping it up-to-date...Falzone keeps the action pacey, although there is a slightly rough, ragged quality that doesn't always seem intentional...But if you're in the mood for a comic takedown of the 45th president and his often bizarre entourage, you'll enjoy some bursts of clarifying laughter." Full Review
“A mildly humorous political revue about the 45th POTUS...Being reminded of almost every creature in this so-called leader's black lagoon (a.k.a. swamp) for a nonstop, 85-minutes can be a slog...Still, given the need for some outlet, any outlet, for theatregoers to vent their disgust, shows like this…perform a valuable public service. They cavort with nonstop energy but the impersonations are mostly ragged and singing ability is not a company strength. Only Weinberger displays…standout talent.” Full Review
"The enterprise that Holson conceived...includes numbers trading on abiding Trump situations and disasters. Most of the passing time they’re mildly amusing as performed by the cast in a Gerard Alessandrini-like whirlwind. That, by the way, is despite some of them not being exactly close to pitch...Then there’s the late turn in which she has Weinberger as Hillary Clinton sing out the f-word several times and include at least one s**t word. This is not satire. It’s degradation." Full Review
"Breezy but patchy...The youthful and energetic cast and the wigs are outstanding...Director Falzone’s brisk staging mines as much comedy and visual variety as possible, making this virtually unfunny 85-minute presentation bearable...For those upset at how the election turned out, 'Me the People' may be mildly cathartic. As an entertainment it borders on being passable." Full Review
"The result is is often downright hilarious, thanks to the blend of clever lyrics and song parodies, and especially thanks to the four exceptionally talented, very funny and inventive performers who assume a rapid-fire variety of identities...The wide-ranging sketches and character assortment involve rapid changes of costumes and wigs." Full Review
"A rousing tonic to despair...A clever, satirical revue...The talented quartet sing with exuberance and commitment, doing hilarious impressions...This show is guaranteed to make you laugh. Guaranteed...This is definitely a satire from the heart and it gets to the heart of the matter...Holson speaks her truth, demonstrating the power of humor as refuge and inspiration. Kindred spirits gather, have a drink, laugh and are reinvigorated for the fight." Full Review
"'Trump Lear' turns out to be a gem, a brilliant gem with many facets that shine an intensely comic light on Trump. It's a brutally honest x-ray as only a comedy can be, a sardonic, scary, funny take on Donald Trump as seen through the eyes of a victimized playwright/performer who is-shades of '1984!'-kidnapped and imprisoned for making fun of the President!" Full Review
"Political comedy has reached new levels of brazenness...A bright and shiny example of the trend, with a quartet of deliciously talented performers...They switch effortlessly from one impression to the next, often with split-second timing...Assuming that at least part of Holson’s mission is to make us laugh, she certainly succeeds. Not everything squarely hits its mark and there’s a lot of ‘preaching to the choir’ about this show, but if nothing else, it’s a very funny, well-delivered sermon." Full Review
"For both a hilarious night out and a satirical look at the current state of politics, 'Me the People' will not disappoint...The writing, which could easily have fallen into a gimmicky trap, is nuanced, giving even the most outrageous sketches a smart and extremely relevant feel. The evening draws attention to the political anxiety looming in the back of everyone’s mind while giving the audience a safe space to come together and face the next four years with a laugh." Full Review
"'Me the People' manages to be entertaining and cringe-worthy at its best moments, and only the slightest bit schlocky at its worst...A cast of four performs clever takes on pop hits, oldies and show tunes that have been reworked to represent the political frenzy...Many of the jokes initially cause soreness in their necessity and verity, but they quickly take on a poignant tone amidst the mockumentary-style laughs. Holson’s writing is important and consummately unique." Full Review
"Every complaint you might have about the buffoonish wannabe autocrat and his administration gets belted to the rafters, often with wit and always with a familiar tune and principled razzle-dazzle. Such a show is by nature hit or miss, but if the current gag doesn’t hit you, the next one’s always incoming and quite likely on target...Occasionally, the material is rote or thin, but two inspired choices distinguish the show...This is the first show I’ve ever adored that I hope has cause to clos... Full Review
"'Me the People' gives pause for thought and a great deal of humor. So let's lighten up and laugh at ourselves in this present political impeachable climate...The writers take the absurdity that is the Trump administration and put a laugh bomb under it...The cast...change costumes and characters faster than a Trump lie and, like Trump, do it with aplomb. They are talented and brilliant at shining a light via this political satire on our nation's most embarrassing presidential moments." Full Review
"'Me the People' is a laugh-out-loud-funny satirical revue and I guarantee it will turn your Trump loathing howls of presidential pain that have you hiding under the covers into Trump loathing howls of cathartic laughter that will have you rolling in the aisles. Four supremely talented cast members and one hardworking pianist skewer everything...The show plans to run until Donald is impeached. And I'm tempted to say that I hope he isn't so the show can run forever." Full Review
