What recommends “Bullet” is the garage-show confidence with which Mayes, choreographer Natasha Norman, the design team and a laudable ensemble attack the mayhem.
David C. Nichols – LA Times
Whether the show is cause for celebration or indignation probably depends on what side of the ’60s divide one’s birth year falls. Whether you laugh or cry when Tocantins flashes a full-color glossy of Kennedy minus his brainpan will depend on what you smoke before the show.
Bill Raden – LA Weekly
Theories about the Kennedy assassination have been explored in film and stage many times, but not like this mad romp and wild chaotic ride at Sacred Fools — L.A.’s delightfully irreverent theatre company.
Clare Elfman – Buzzine
The script flails around so much that no one is likely to take it seriously.
Don Shirley – LA Stage Watch
The production dances gleefully with nihilism, finding its footing somewhere between bravery and childishness.
