    There is so much I love about this play. I love the play's huge imagination, its bravery, its wildness, all the theatrical surprises, and it also emotionally wrecked me. And I love that it centers LGBTQ characters in such an awesome, truthful way. I have been banging the drum since my first read of this play for more folks to get to know BLOOM BLOOM POW because I think we will all be better when more people are reading and producing plays like this one.

    Simon has crafted an absolute sensory overload of a play in the best way possible. A look at climate change that moves at breakneck speed and has so much potential for stage magic. Bold and brilliant.

    I am never going to look at the Hudson River the same way again...the dead horse at the bottom of the ocean is the most frightening and metal thing I've ever heard. I love that this will be played by mostly non-cis actors and that it centers on a non-binary person. And the dialogue between the museum employees killed me. Great work!

    Wow, wow, wow. This play blew me away. A delight to read, I can only imagine what it would be like to experience BLOOM BLOOM POW as a full production. If you're looking to produce something experimental that delves deeply into our changing, decaying world, this play is for you. If you're looking to read something that will challenge and inspire you, this play is for you, too.

    In this psychedelic meditation on isolation, intimacy, environmentalism, and the breast stroke, Simon weaves and unravels a beautiful character study in an increasingly ugly world. The dialogue is sharp, the imagery is visceral, and, in the center of it all, Mag stands charming, infuriating, and very, very scared. I, for one, would love to see a workshop production of this piping-hot new play.
