The Motherf--ker with the Hat | [Stephen Adly Guirgis]

The Motherf--ker with the Hat

Addiction, pain, and explosive tempers are not exactly what you’d call the ingredients for a side-splitting comedy. Yet Steven Adly Guiguis has created a profane, hilarious masterpiece that earned a "hatful" of theatrical accolades in 2011, including a Drama Desk award for Outstanding Actor in a Play for Bobby Cannavale. Stars the original Broadway cast: Chris Rock, Bobby Canavale, Annabella Sciorra, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Yul Vazquez.

    "Unbelievably Good"
    What did you love best about The Motherf--ker with the Hat?

    Bobby Cannavale's performance, Guirgis' words.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cannavale is so tough,vulnerable,and real.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction was huge. Surprise. Shock at the unashamed, unbridled humanity of it all.

    Yes. Great writing and the Actors were awesome.


    What other book might you compare The Motherf--ker with the Hat to and why?

    It is a play so I cannot really compare.

    "Emotional Rollercoaster"

    I have listened to this dramatization many times. I have even invited my friends to listen to it with me because I enjoy it so much. It is a rollercoaster of emotions, which set you off having to listen to some load mouth crass women, central character, spouting off to her man and changing her tone to suit his answers. This sets the scene. It transcends to emotions from aggressive, explosive, loud mouth obscenities to threats, fearful anxieties and every emotion you can think of and - you are laughing at it! The actors are amazing at pulling off this story, so good in fact you can see them acting it out before your very eyes. You can feel every expression, visualise every guesture. Amazing talent, good story, with great twist in the tale. Fun to listen to. Well worth your money. Enjoy
