"Thank you for an excellent evening of entertainment. Fantastic work all around!" – Michael C. McGreevy
"The show was AMAZING!!! Congrats to you and everybody at Jobsite for a job VERY well done. I had tears streaming down my face walking out from laughing so hard during Act II. We're planning on seeing it a second time; we loved it so." – Jessica Ansert
"LOVED IT!" – Catherine Matthews & Melissa Freeman
"What a wonderfully staged, acted and produced play. Loved the twist of an ending! Jobsite Theater is like a fine red Bordeaux, it just keeps improving with age. And the 09/10 season looks to be the very best ever. Keep it up, folks – your efforts make Tampa so much more livable and enjoyable." – Sharon & Lew Sibert
"I saw Lieutenant of Inishmore Sunday afternoon and in spite of the gore, the wincing and the ewwww-ing, I loved it! I've just sent a PayPal contribution to help defray some of your special effects costs. Keep up the great work!" – Susan Martin
"Kari, your dad and I are just so proud ... For the past couple of months when you told me about this show, I couldn't understand how it was a comedy. It just seemed so sick that our little girl was excited about playing with guns and dead bodies. Well, I can tell you, we both laughed at the show until our sides hurt. It's some of the best work I've seen Jobsite produce. Congratulations!" – Kathy Goetz
"What a show, top to bottom. Thanks to you and the cast for the treat. We sat front and center, sipping Jack, and nearly got wet. The only thing that would have made it better: free refills." – Ben Montgomery
"I was at the preview on Wednesday night and I really enjoyed the show. Solid performances by the entire cast... Thanks Jobsite for continuing to bring the best plays to Tampa." – Lorne Lakin
"Do not miss this one if you are in Tampa. Jobsite gets better every single time." – Susan Oliver

The Whole Gory Story Behind Lieutenant of Inishmore – St. Petersburg Times
Blood By The Gallon Spills In Dark Comedy – Tampa Tribune
"The production was very well acted, especially the parts of Padraic and Mairead. There's real chemistry between the characters and they develop an almost Mickey and Mallory Knox-like bond.... This play is also not for the squeamish, as the blood continues to pile up through the final act." – MyTampaLife.com
"All of the acting is superb. Irish accents are spot-on, and the cast works well as an ensemble.... Martin McDonagh’s plotting is immaculate.... Even though I usually don’t like violence at all, it was humorous in the context of the play.... I would definitely recommend this play." – ARTS NET, Tampa Bay
"In this comedy of devastating errors, with enough extreme carnage to make Quentin Tarantino queasy, bumbling characters shoot, maim, slice and dice one another with abandon and little remorse.... At the play's end, the stage is drenched, eliciting sickening sounds as the actors left standing tread the saturated floorboards.... The easily offended might not appreciate the absurd overkill and outrageously misplaced values. But for everyone else, it's hilarious." – The Tampa Tribune
"Full serving of gore, horror and hilarity.... Gruesomely violent as it is, Inishmore is almost slapstick.... David Jenkins and his cast (almost all Jobsite regulars) amp up the violence and humor... and blood flows profusely (in extremely effective special effects by Chris Holcom).... The entire cast does fine work.... Lots of people like blood, guts and mayhem, and they're the ones this production aims to please." – St. Petersburg Times
"I was warned... violence, gunshots, blood, gore, loud music, cat murder(s).... Part satire, part farce, part murder mystery, Jobsite delivered on the promise. Yet heed the warning: ‘This play is not for the easily offended’.... It's funny, it's sexy, it's a bloodbath – it's like a Tarantino movie, but not as pretty. Blood isn't just spattered here and there – it's smeared and splashed on walls, windows, floors and bodies, alive and dead, human and feline." – Creative Loafing
