NYT CRITICS’ PICK “A vibrant and expansive comic drama with heaving humanity, surging vitality and diversity! This coproduction operates on a scale seldom encountered Off Broadway. Its teeming expansiveness rivals that of The Ferryman.” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times “Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven is the funniest, saddest play of the year, with at least a dozen characters who go straight to your heart; a female Iceman Cometh for this century. The cast, under Ortiz’s direction, is uniformly brilliant. Never has the stage at Atlantic Theater Company been more alive with action.” — Robert Hofler, The Wrap “Bursting with emotional life. The characters' rich humanity comes through loud & clear onstage, forcing us to confront a reality we might otherwise choose to avoid.” — Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter HALFWAY BITCHES GO STRAIGHT TO HEAVEN world premiere co-production with LAByrinth Theater Company EXTENDS AGAIN! NOW THRU JAN 5 ONLY ★★★★★ “Guirgis is a street poet of the underbelly.” — Steven Suskin, New York Stage Review “Some of the best actors in New York giving unforgettable performances. Halfway Bitches is not only worth your time, but leaves you wanting more. Refreshingly, there is nothing politically correct or precious about it.” — Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania “I suggest you immediately grab a ticket for the deeply humane & ultimately heart-wrenching Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven. It’s easily one of the best plays of 2019.” — Brian Scott Lipton, Theater Pizzazz “You gotta go see it.” — Margret Echeverria, New York Theatre Guide Photos by Monique Carboni & Ahron R. Foster.
