"a scary hoot"
THE MORNING CALL
"The characters are well developed, the songs funny and easy to follow and the choreography well executed. Each character is more outlandish than the last and the script is full of surprises."
"Shorr’s biting satire could not be more relevant as it exposes through the humor all-too-familiar ploys to discredit critics and the media, destroy trust in facts, say what people want to hear, tap into their insecurities, and polarize opinions."

THE BETHLEHEM PRESS
"The cast of four is equal to the brilliance of the script."
"...there is no doubt that satire gets its message across far better than any lecture. The test is to make the points, but not to push them too far. In “Dictators 4 Dummies,” Shorr and the Touchstone cast have done a remarkable job of walking the line without going over it."
"...there’s something really liberating about being able to laugh about terrible things... Sometimes, the best way to make an audience think is to make them laugh, and Dictators 4 Dummies does just that."
