Yet some of these odd scenes, including shipman Jack Driscoll’s (Eric Curtis Johnson) confessions to an AA meeting and the Skull Island native chief (Arden Haywood) shedding his headdress to instruct us about “race” movies from the 1930s, offer some deliciously amusing rewards.
Pauline Adamek – LA Weekly
Written with hilarious imagination by Adam Hahn (from some warped corner of his mind) and directed with magically maniacal mayhem by Jaime Robledo, this is one whacky “laugh-a-minute” production!
Pat Taylor – Tolucan Times
Whether in the jungle, high atop the Empire State Building or aboard a sea faring vessel, “Kong-A Goddamn Thirty-Foot Gorilla” is a fun, frolic of passion comedy adventure and audience participation.
Lorenzo Marchessi – NoHoArtsDistrict
Now terrorizing audiences with uncontrollable laughter and audible guffaws, Adam Hahn’s “Kong: A Goddamn Thirty-Foot Gorilla,” utilizing miniature rubber soldiers, dinosaur sock puppets, and cardboard skyscrapers to tell its tale, is so delightfully bare-bones that it makes “Silence: The Musical” look like “Les Miz.”
Travis Michael Holder – Backstage
Director Jaime Robledo deserves enormous (sorry) credit for turning an essentially high-concept comedy sketch into an often hilarious full-length high-camp romp.
Philip Brandes – LA Times
