Broadway World - Recommended

"...Marmo brilliantly leads the audience through the many ups and downs of Bruce's hard life, born to a British father and Long Island Jewish mother, whose neuroses led to much of Bruce's off-color humor. Each short bit stands in its own right, with Marmo masterfully commanding the stage with his powerful character representation, including Bruce's descent into hard drugs - a scene that was truly difficult to watch in its realistic depiction."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Ronnie Marmo brings the ground-breaking standup comic legend Lenny Bruce back to scabrously funny, heartbreakingly poignant life in I Am Not A Comedian ... I'm Lenny Bruce, the latest from Theatre 68."

The Tolucan Times - Highly Recommended

"...Directed with GRITTY FOCUS by actor Joe Mantegna (TV's Criminal Minds), the delicate balance between actor and director is strongly felt here. Not usually a big fan of "one-actor" productions, but now and then one comes along that I feel puts the audience in a focused and appreciative trance throughout. This is one of those magical times!"

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Co-writers Ronnie Marmo and Jason M. Burns have created an inventive portrait of comedian Lenny Bruce. The show underscores the arc of a brilliant career that was cut short at the age of 40 due to an accidental drug overdose. Infused with a sampling of the comedian's off-the-cuff, riff-like performance style, Marmo (who also stars) ably inhabits Bruce's persona. Director Joe Mantengna establishes a seamless flow of story and comedic performance, utilizing Theatre 68's stage area to optimum effect. Texturing the proceedings are the lighting, production, and sound designs of Matthew Richter."
