"Ms. Hopkins is marvelously good and sympathetic company; artfully plain, her sung and spoken meditations on the agony of creation come as a relief to those who have faced the same difficulties to see something through...I found myself wondering what 'The Alcoholic Movie Musical!' might do if it weren’t quite so charming...It’s fun to watch Ms. Hopkins talk about going off the rails. What would happen if, onstage, she did the same?"

"Why does 'The Alcoholic Movie Musical!' feel so fresh? It may be how loose it is, how shambolic and naked—her collaborator (and husband) Jeff Sugg runs tech from an onstage board; the rehearsal calendar is on display...We’re still seduced by the sweetness of their interplay, jokes and dances that seem for each other alone.....Who knew? Something familiar is new again. How lovely."

"Performance artist Cynthia Hopkins treats you to a blissful night of blurred genres in 'The Alcoholic Movie Musical!' at The Bushwick Starr. A meta-musical on the struggles of making art and exiting a drinking problem, Hopkins’ failed attempts become comedic confessions when reenacted and embellished live...All projections (as clever as they are) pale in comparison to Hopkins and Sugg in real-time, both wholesome and hilarious in their disarming allure."
