As a performer, Sue Costello is energetic and fearless. The Boston Herald. Sue Costello could light an entire city with energy  Spending time with Sue Costello is a little like spending time with a tornado. You're going to be blown away." Desert News.

Sue Costellos charismatic performance is mesmerizing as you march with her through her teenage years on the Dorchester streets through her life in New York and Hollywood. - Colin Quinn

Sues show was amazing, hilarious, dark and brutally honest, Run dont walk to the theatre!
-Molly Shannon

Sue Costello, though best known as a brilliant comedian, created and performs this play solo, with extraordinary range. Sue plays herself at different periods in her life on stage and she converses with real-life characters we can't see, but whose presence is as real and riveting as hers. What's especially striking about #IamSueCostello is that it isn't simply a monologue about Sues life or a series of quick impressions, but part comedic performance, part-raw emotional saga.Local Boston papers aren't simply championing a home-town girl but heralding a major comedic and playwriting talent:
 The Boston Metro said Not many people have the charisma, stamina, or the anecdotes to sustain a 1 1/2hr show alone, Sue Costello does it sans props, costumes or music in the play.  The Boston Herald called the show powerful, thanks to Costellos frank charisma and her ability to mingle humor with tragedy. It's the flipside of Costello's stand up act- too brutal and frank to be disposable as a night of jokes The Patriot Ledger mused that, Costello rivets the audience with a comics gift for delivery and wit and an actress skill with emotion.  

Actress Kristen Johnston said "I left this show seething with jealousy and completely dazzled by Sue Costello's brilliant and agonizingly funny portrait of a young girls youth. It's an incredible story of survival, and the performance of a lifetime. I can't wait to see it again."
 Kevin Nealon commented, Great characters, great writing and hilarious delivery.  She is the next Whoopionly not black.  Patricia Clarkson agreed, "Sue Costello is an incredible talent  I LOVED this show!"

"She's wrangled her singular life into a searingly honest & hilarious show that kind of makes sense of everything. " Taylor Schilling
