Made me feel like I'd been punched in the gut--in a good way. Touching, funny, heartbreaking. ... full review

Bonnie's show That's What She Didn't Say is a great, uplifting, moving and funny show with sarcastic wit, surprising revelations and insights and an air of in your face honesty about the ups and downs in all our lives. Go see it!... full review

Bonnie has a beautiful voice. This show is worth seeing for the songs alone. Her story is also one that we know exists but don't hear out loud as often as we know it must happen. Bonnie has a non-profit with the same name as the show, and it's an appropriate name. https://www.facebook.com/thatswhatshedidntsay... full review
LA LA LAND TALK certified reviewer June 27, 2014
Bonnie Sludikoff is a gifted artist and a brave soul. Blending her own original music (the songs are perfect) into a powerful plot, she shows poise, blended with humor, as she tells a story that it certainly takes a mountain of courage to tell. Bonnie's quick improve skills proved helpful and her general positive energy, gave us someone to care deeply for. Every woman....no, every person, needs to see this show. We applaud Bonnie for her grace, candor and talent. It's difficult to picture a more well deserved standing ovation.... full review
REGIE DE LEON certified reviewer June 27, 2014
I had the privilege of watching Bonnie Joy Sludikoff's one woman show "That's What She Didn't Say" last night, and am still emotionally raw by what she was brave enough to share. Sexual abuse is always so conveniently swept under the rug, and the fact that it's so prevalent yet disturbingly overlooked (the statistic Bonnie shares in the show of 1 in 3 women being abused was shocking, but even more so when you realize those are only the reported cases) incenses me, and makes me even more proud of Bonnie for educating me by being courageous enough to tell her story. I loved the show for shedding light on topics that aren't often talked about, but also for being funny and heartwarming, like when she talked about her first crush and love of musi... full review
JOANNA PERRY-FOLINO certified reviewer June 27, 2014
What potential! The show was terrifically engaging as is. Bonnie is open hearted, fiercely and remarkably honest and is gifted with a fabulous voice. Put it all together and you have an evening that rides like a roller coaster into the dark and the grey and occasionally the bright light of enlightenment. The fact Bonnie endured so much abuse that went disregarded and denied by teachers and parents and lived to tell about it speaks volumes about her undaunted spirit. She's the type you don't fuck with folks because under that sensitive exterior is one tough cookie. Clearly a winner on so many important levels. I would love to see That's What She Didn't Say further refined and sharpened and brought into a wider venue. Perhaps an extended run?... full review
KATE ORLANDO certified reviewer June 16, 2014
Bonnie Joy Sludikoff is absolutely incredible in her one woman show piece. Based on her own life events, Sludikoff expertly balances the fine line of real life humor and the tough subject matter of sexual abuse. Her story is one worth hearing. A truly wonderful show with a strong story written by a beautiful girl. Sludikoff's writing incorporates several personal stories of struggle and weaves beautifully sung songs from musicals that help the audience identify with her personal struggle. As a triple threat; Sludikoff is writer, actor, singer making her one to watch out for in the upcoming years.... full review

Bonnie is a versatile, talented performer. She delights, charms and moves us in her one act play. Her play deals with some tough material and she handles it with aplomb. It is as entertaining as it is an important play to see. ... full review
THE GLORIOUS ACT THAT WE DO certified reviewer June 29, 2014
This show was beautifully and gracefully crafted to tell a difficult, vulnerable, and important story in a way that meets the audience where they are at and entertains them with humor along the way. Bonnie's strong, unique voice (both in content and in actual singing) deservedly finally gets to be heard on stage, and her show has the effect of encouraging others to speak (or sing!) their stories as well. ... full review
JUSTIN KEY certified reviewer June 29, 2014
This was perhaps one of the best well written, one woman shows I've ever seen. The seriousness interwoven with the comic relief sections made for a roller coaster of emotions that landed me on my feet giving a rousing hand of applause during the bows. ... full review
