ABSOLUTELY FILTHY: 100% – SWEET

SWEET
Devoid of Schulz’s signature innocence and simplicity, Absolutely Filthy is certainly not an authorized use of the Peanuts franchise, but this reviewer laughed enough to hope that the cease-and-desist letter demons stay far, far away from this Sacred Fools run.
Mia Bonadonna – Stage and Cinema

SWEET
Not only did people in the audience believe it, they loved it.
Rebecca Raleigh – LA Examiner

SWEET
It seems that the Fools’ late-night series Serial Killers, where this show originated, has once again yielded comedy gold.
Mayank Keshaviah – LA Weekly

SWEET
Absolutely Filthy is psychotically written, but keenly designed. It is an intricate, enormously inspired, hilarious display of humanity at its worst and best. We are all the better for experiencing it.
Tracey Paleo – Gia on the Move

SWEET
Now “Absolutely Filthy” is not a show for everyone. But if you’re a fan of “Peanuts”, a cartoon aficionado, or just someone who likes their humor pitched fast and underhanded then this might be just up your alley.
Ernest Kearney – Working Author

SWEET
This many-layered text is grandly served by the consistently pitch-perfect ensemble and inspired, imaginative direction by Jeremy Aldridge.
Myron Meisel – The Hollywood Reporter

SWEET
With its twisted humor and straightforward tenderness, Absolutely Filthy deserves the same kind of support. Yes, it kills off CB, but this unauthorized parody honors its pedigree. In the end Hunt makes sure the blockhead gets a valentine. The playwright/actor/hula-hooper deserves a quiver-full in return.
Jon Magaril – CurtainUp

SWEET
In that, it could use a bit of a trim. But the surprise is in how characters we’ve known and loved as kids are still able to entertain and move us in entirely unexpected ways.
Kevin Taft – EdgeLosAngeles

SWEET
Absolutely excellent.
Colin Mitchell – Bitter Lemons

SWEET
This is one of the best Sacred Fools shows ever — and a play that truly seems appropriate for a company called Sacred Fools.
Don Shirley – LA Stage Times
