-"★★★★!  The play asks whether either side of this Jekyll/Hyde combo can survive without the other, and smudges the dividing line between them... The behind-the-makeup approach is admirably sincere: The show is less interested in reproducing Divine comedy than in chasing Divinerevelation."
—Adam Feldman, Time Out NY, CRITICS PICK

“[A] searing and insightful new drama… it will also leave many in the audience questioning their own deep-seated anger and need for validation. Hopefully, Divine will be staging her intervention in a venue beyond the Fringe sometime soon.”

“Braden Chapman’s work is tight, disciplined and fully-realized…What Smith does splendidly is recreate the early years of the world trying to put together in its head that a drag performer could rise to such fame as Divine did. You feel Glenn/Divine’s struggle as they recreate a period in time that was very fearful about Gays during an AIDS epidemic and how he glamorized the newly created Trash-Aesthetic.”
