    Once you start reading this play you cannot stop. The way it touches on these topics is theatrical and beautifully written. I hope everyone has the opportunity to read this at least once because it is powerful.

    A great play that challenges the ideas around accidental death through the bending of reality, humorizing of super hero stereotypes and satirizing of broadcast news

    Black Super Hero Magic Mama is a must-read for everybody! Every character jumps off of the page and represents so much more than meets the eye. A brilliant blend of realism and surrealism, we are introduced to grief, media misrepresentation, people of color, liberation, female empowerment, familial bonds, police brutality, you name it. The story is simply amazing. There is so much heart and perspective in this script, not to mention the wonderful theatricality. This production will leave an impact.

    A powerhouse of a play full of heart and hope, whose exploration of grief and trauma will break your heart, and heal it again.

    A superb play that covers a multitude of important topics, topics that deserved to be fully explored and examined in the world of playwriting. The characters in it are intense and driven. Sabrina has the fascinating challenge of either become a spokesman for the black community or simply dealing with her grief. I particularly enjoyed the news characters and their 'super' counterparts, Galvan delivers a biting commentary on how these kinds of 'tragedies' are covered, and how the media reduces these life-changing events to something that just happens.

    This play is truly an amazing masterpiece. To tell a story of police brutality is hard and this was depicted scarily accurate. The way this play shows the coping of grief and will leave anyone in tears.

    This was a beautiful story with so much heart and with vibrant characters. This is an incredibly important story to be told. It serves as a necessary reminder about humanity and compassion. Amazing Work.

    This gorgeous play tells an important story about our country's horrific trend of police brutality against young Black men. Craig-Galvan manages to do this with brush strokes of humor that root us in both of Sabrina's realities. Imaginative. Powerful. Real.
