Opening Night:
August 8, 2012
Closing:
October 21, 2012

Theater: New World Stages / 340 West 50th Street, New York, NY, 10019

Synopsis: 

During the summer of 1983, in the sweltering heat of Houston, an unlikely friendship is formed when a couple of mid-western rubes with uncertain futures meet up with a slick New Yorker on the run from his past. The disappearance of a WWII artifact sets off a chain of events that proves that nothing changes the present like a blast from the past. The characters that populate this hysterical, rapid-fire new comedy by real-life friends Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman are based on real people, though the events depicted are fiction and the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.

    Ben Brantley

    August 10, 2012: IN “BULLET FOR ADOLF,” WHICH OPENED ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT NEW WORLD STAGES ... WHAT’S THAT? Oh, was I shouting? I’m sorry. It’s just that I’ve seen this new play, and it’s performed at such a high decibel level that it’s hard to hear yourself think over even the recollection of it.

    ‘Adolf’ is locked & loaded

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    September 15, 2012: ‘Bullet for Adolf” has all the markings of a cult show — it could be theater’s answer to a midnight movie.

    Bullet for Adolf

    Keith Staskiewicz

    August 10, 2012: Perhaps appropriately, Woody Harrelson's Off Broadway play Bullet for Adolf — which he directed and co-wrote with longtime friend Frankie Hyman — has quite a bit in common with a pot-addled jaw session: You'll laugh way more than you were expecting, everything meanders rather pleasantly, but by the end you won't really remember much of it at all.

    Bullet for Adolf

    Jennifer Farrar

    August 9, 2012: If you clearly remember the early 1980s, you probably weren't inhaling enough. Helping recapture the wacky side of those tumultuous, uneasy years in America is the lewd, rude and often screamingly funny new play, "Bullet for Adolf."

    Bullet for Adolf

    Sarah Lucie

    September 15, 2012: We all know that Woody Harrelson is funny, so it’s no surprise that his new play, co-written with long-time friend Frankie Hyman, is packed with side-splitting one-liners. Sure, the play may not impart wisdom on the audience or incite profound conversation, but it sure is entertaining.

    Bullet For Adolf

    Erik Haagensen

    August 8, 2012: "Bullet for Adolf," a two-and-a-half-hour stoner-slacker-dude screwball comedy from first-time playwrights Woody Harrelson (yes, the actor) and Frankie Hyman, begins with a caffeinated monologue from a supporting character about a man called Gator who has nothing at all to do with what follows. It's an early sign that the two scribes are in way over their heads. Not everybody should write for the stage.

    Bullet For Adolf

    MICHAEL BRACKEN

    August 9, 2012: With the subtlety of a storm trooper and no urgency whatsoever, "Bullet for Adolf," at New World Stages, takes its time establishing itself as a comic whodunit. Until Act I closes, there's no plot to speak of. Written by Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman, "Bullet" focuses on Zach (Brandon Coffey), Clint (David Coomber), Dago-Czech (Lee Osorio) and Frankie (Tyler Jacob Rollinson): four characters writ large and played broad, reveling in their outrageousness but going nowhere fast.

    Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman's shaggy-dog story has some incendiary elements, but not much else

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    August 9, 2012: It’s easy to admire Woody Harrelson’s brass for co-writing and directing a comedy that mashes together incendiary material like Nazis and frequent N-words with stupid stuff like booty calls and afterbirth as appetizer. But beyond that, it’s hard to find much else to relish about “Bullet for Adolf,” a shaggy-dog story that’s as long-winded as it is light on laughs.

    Bullet For Adolf

    Dan Bacalzo

    August 9, 2012: Stage and screen star Woody Harrelson is the big draw for Bullet for Adolf, now at New World Stages although the talented actor is unfortunately not in the cast; instead he is the co-author (with Frankie Hyman) and director of this tepid new comedy.
