"Breakout hit of the season… The Next Big Thing in Canadian theatre… comic brilliance… Thompson’s script is very smart [and he] directs with aplomb, aided by the talented, versatile cast… Bound for New York and bigger things, Broken Sex Doll looks like another west coast Canadian musical sensation.”
~ Jerry Wasserman, The Province
“Don’t see this show unless you want to laugh your face off. It’s rude, rude, rude and funny, funny, funny... Get ready to roll in the aisles... Forget about mascara; you’ll be wearing it all over your face when the curtain falls... If you want to laugh all the way back to your condo (or, as they say in Europe, your condom), this one’s right up your old alley.”
~ Jo Ledingham, The Vancouver Courier
“Built for outrageousness… buzzing away at full capacity to deliver plenty of pleasure… The unabashed energy of Broken Sex Doll puts it on a fantastic roll early on, as members of the public download the video — ‘And now a sparkling thingy?’ — and flop around like orgasmic fish… There’s not a weak link in the 10-member cast.”
~ Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight
“A stage show that’s fun [with] a lot of profanity [and] simulated sex… It defies categorization, it pushes boundaries, it pushes its performers – and its audience… This is provocative theatre, the kind that makes you want to write a giant cheque to an independent theatre company, to say ‘keep going!’”
~ Marsha Lederman, Globe and Mail
“Andy Thompson is a passionate creative man who has a great sense of mischief... Broken Sex Doll is so outrageous and funny I hurt my knee... It’s a dirty, naughty wickedly funny revenge tale… [a] rocking dirty good time with a cast that is to die for!”
~ David C. Jones, The Charlebois Post
"This is the play you wished you could see when you were 13 and would do anything to convince your parents to let you. Combining elements of naughtiness and vulgarity while still maintaining the plot and original musical numbers, this musical delivers a bit of the 'can I really be watching this in public?!' feeling... Will definitely leave you satisfied..."
~ Emily Ross, Sad Mag
"Broken Sex Doll writer/director Andy Thompson has created fantastic yet believable future... The dialog is quite hilarious... a campy and really enjoyable love story... Wild stage performance..."
~ Myles Constable, Vancouver Vantage
