Burning Bush: Press

"Galvanizing and energizing...very funny...envelope-pushing!

"We need more Noah Diamonds and Amanda Sisks to take aim at all the bastions 
of power in this country...

"The most politically motivated show I've seen in NYC in a long time. Hardly 
anything could be more American than that."

-- MARTIN DENTON, nytheatre.com

"Author/performers Noah Diamond and Amanda Sisk created a theatrical romp 
with song parodies, dance routines, much camping and vamping...The cast has a 
lot of fun with it while putting their every effort and heart into the songs...

"Brian Louis Hoffman's absurd George W. Bush heightens this satire to farce level. 
He's a dead ringer in movement and intensity of Georgie...If I ever needed a Jesus 
who could double as a dozen other characters I'd call on Corey Moosa."
