Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You enjoy over the top humor. Some funny moments, lots of murders in the 3 skits.

Don't see it if Cast is uneven. Drags and becomes repetitive at 1 hour 43 minutes.

Ambitious, Edgy, Funny, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if You like to see a series (3) of 1-act plays, which are all connected. Small theatre. Campy/decent acting, gun play, violence, drugs, sex,

Don't see it if Mayhem, vulgarity. Strong subject matter, covered by humor. Well done. If offended by any of the above- do not see.

BroadwayWorld
September 8th, 2017

"It's a violent little play full of gallows humor, misogynistic cracks, and rambling word games that go on for too long and yet, there is something to it. 'Love Is Dead!' gave a rough premiere tonight at The Secret Theatre. Beneath its plodding pace, one thing is clear: the work is a modern-day penny-dreadful, though with more 'South Park' style than Grand Guignol wit."

Theatre is Easy
September 11th, 2017

“This brand of warped humor walks a fine line between inappropriate and hilarious, and Sugrue is extremely skilled at balancing right on that line…The lives of these oddballs are woven together in an extremely clever way, but for some actors, the writing serves as a crutch. While some are fantastic, others did not develop their characters as much as they could have…Despite being quite humorous, there is real pain and confusion here…Such a fun show, as long as you aren't easily offended.”

Queens Chronicle
September 14th, 2017

"A mostly captivating couple of hours...While several of the situations depicted are far-fetched, and the performances decidedly uneven, the play is powerful enough to hold one’s interest...Sugrue’s is a voice to be heard; much of the dialogue is crisp and, more often than might be expected, quite funny. As director, he serves the writing well, keeping nearly the entire playing time at a snappy pace...Several standout performances go a long way in lending credibility."
