June Thomas of Slate calls it "a cri de coeur!" and Edge says it's "An absolute must-see. Hilarious. Kate Hess is a delight." LAWeekly, Time Out, LAist, Los Angeles Magazine, and NPR all say Keep Calm and Visit Murder Abbey!

"She’s funny, she’s quirky and more so she is downright talented, and make sure you loosen your corset for her show because it will make you bust some stitches.

"Murder Abbey" is an absolute must-see, it is hilarious, charming and highly impressive. Kate Hess is a delight to watch and you definitely need to take a trip to the English countryside to see her... especially since murder is on the menu. - Edge Los Angeles

"Hold on to your petticoat for a loving takedown of Masterpiece-esque dramas. UCB's Kate Hess writes and performs in this solo show, set in a Downton Abbey-like estate, as the costumed comedian desconstructs a metric ton of TV tropes and Britishisms." - Time Out Los Angeles

“The funny, silly character performer Kate Hess’s solo show skewers mannered British period dramas, Downton Abbey among them.” - Time Out New York
