Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Hell in a Handbag Productions’ horror trilogy, penned by David Cerda, offers little in the way of hilarity, spooks, or fabulous drag performances. The first vignette, “Taco Tuesday,” has the most potential, with Satan (a poisonously sweet Rachel Hadlock) striking via an office copier, but successive stories evoke yawns and head scratching."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...When I think about October, it’s crisp, cool air in the mornings; gorgeous colors on trees; pumpkins and jack o’ lanterns; college football games and my anniversary. For many others, October is the perfect month to scare the bejesus out of everyone around them, with creepy costumes, horror stories, haunted houses, and scary plays. Instead of fear, panic and alarm, the audience at Hell in a Handbag’s hilarious horror trilogy, “Scream, Queen, Scream!”, was howling with laughter."

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...Supported by Lolly Extract’s puppetry and special effects, Mikey Moran’s pulsating sound design, Kate Setzer Kamphausen’s spectacular costumes and Karen Kawa’s over-the-top wig designs, this premiere will no doubt become a seasonal favorite. For liberal audiences with a taste for adult humor, spicy language and provocative situations, there can be no better way to shiver through a Fall evening in Chicago than with a drink in your hand and a scream on your lips."

"...SCREAM QUEEN SCREAM is a good one for the Halloween season. I enjoyed myself. With some additional Cerda magic, it could be a great one and become an annual Halloween tradition."
