Broadway World (3/5 stars) 3 days ago

Lottie Platchett Took A Hatchett promises to be a queer, feminist retelling of a well-known true crime story. It's incredibly camp with a little bit of panto thrown in and was definitely a hit with the audience.

Gonzo Magazine (4/5 stars) 5 days ago

All the performances are excellent, with Lopez’s clowning a particular highlight, but the way Jessica Hanna has presented the colourful visuals in the story is both clever and interesting. This is supported by excellent technical work which makes what could have been a dry retelling of history (with added porn) vivid and fun.
