Edgy, Funny, Raunchy, Intense, Relevant

See it if You would enjoy a dark comedy / drama about addicts sleeping around, suffering, philosophizing, and trying to improve themselves.

Don't see it if You are looking for a more polished performance. This was difficult material. The spunky young cast was better in some spots than others.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Hilarious, Edgy

See it if I loved this play. All the actors were excellent. My first time seeing Bobby Cannavale. What a part and what an actor!

Don't see it if You don't like swearing. Lots of it here!

"Stephen Adly Guirgis’ heartbreaking script about two f**kups trying hard not to f**k up again has great rhythms, capitalizing on hyper-specific details about New York City and linguistic clues that honor the Puerto Rican heritage of the show’s central characters...Director Peter Jensen builds patient early scenes with this compelling cast, with great, tragic payoff later in the show...The cohesion of this production is also due in no small part to the strong performances of the cast."

"Now, without a big-name cast or a big space, director Peter Jensen and a top-notch creative team have crafted a compelling production blessed with an equally top-drawer cast...The cast handles Guirgis’s script, a mix of boiling profanity and elevated language, with remarkable naturalism...The acting, script, and direction, enhanced by evocative music, sound, and lighting and by Sherry Martinez’s dead-on costumes, are interlocking facets of a gem of a production."

"Guirgis’s unabashedly vulgar play explores themes of love, morality and choice in one of the most diverse cities in the world, New York...The play, one of Guirgis’s best, is both hilarious and thought-provoking...Director Peter Jensen keeps the production’s energy high, and scenic designer Miguel Urbino uses sets that are minimal yet functional...'The Motherf**er with the Hat' is a production you won’t want to miss."
