  “...Kofman’s renegade investigation of endangered post-September 11 civil liberties…   Kofman’s profanity-laced voice is didactic, but it’s purposeful didacticism, unrepentant and self-assured…. Kofman’s ferocity is frequently hysterical and finally unsettling.   AMERICAN MAGIC…casts a lingering spell.”David C Nichols, Los Angeles Times    “…a smart production…something between Richard Foreman’s Ontological-Hysteric Theater and an extended Saturday Night Live skit.”New York Times    “…With his cerebral and absurdist script, Kofman interrogates the assumption of the Patriot Act: that increased security must come at the expense of civil liberties. The play addresses the converse―illustrating that the sacrifice of civil liberties does not necessarily bring safety, and may, in fact, create an apocalyptic climate of fear and violence.   ...AMERICAN MAGIC has its moments of black humor and scathing political critique….”Nicole Citron, Show Business    “Gil Kofman’s new farce, AMERICAN MAGIC, has the look and feel of kinky political satire. Not only is this tweaked fable a refreshing antidote to all the post-9/11 paranoia we’ve been tube-fed by the government and media, it also exhibits a sexy chaos not often glimpsed onstage….”L A Weekly
