Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Roseís script intelligently defines these moral conflicts, and a committed cast make them visceral. The campaign machinations are not rendered with much insider detail or specificity ó seasoned operatives would navigate these challenges very differently. As a result, the piece is more political fable than realistic exposť, but its reflections on compromised ideals still ring true."

LA Weekly - Somewhat Recommended

"...Unfortunately, so is the disingenuousness of act one, in which Rose oversells Mitchell as the reincarnation of Upton Sinclair. Director Jack Stehlin gets sterling performances from his ensemble (which includes Robert Cicchini, Marc Jablon and Jordan Lund), but even the best acting is no substitute for a blue pencil; Roseís digressive and redundant script easily could lose 30 minutes."

"...Standing alone, itís barely enough to hold your interest for a two-hour play."

"...Still, Bedfellows otherwise gathers enough momentum to, well, win an election or two. And how rare is it to see a play thatís set in the world of local LA politics?"
