Here's what critics are saying:

"'BURN K-DOE BURN!' not only defies criticism, I am quite sure it is
impervious to it. Rob Florence's two-act homage is described as a
'romantic comedy from another dimension' and it certainly is that, but the
description doesn't go far enough. It is myth, folklore and legend, set to a
rhythm and blues beat. It distills the essence of Ernie K-Doe's grandiose
public personage and and patois... Like its subject, "Burn K-Doe Burn!" is
a good time show."

- David Cuthbert, The Times-Picayune

"Homegrown entertainment that will rock you, sock you, and
thoroughly entertain you is Rob Florence's two act comedy / drama
'BURN K-DOE BURN!'.... Harold Evans is giving the performance of his life
as Mr. K-Doe.... The show's authenticity is further enhanced with the active
participation of his widow Antoinette.... This show has the audience
dancing in the aisles! Don't miss it."

- George Patterson, The Whiz

"Pretty soon 'Burn, K-Doe, Burn!' will begin a second run. If you live in
New Orleans, you have to see it. It's history. It's legend. It's the ultimate
'only in New Orleans experience.' If you're from out of town, viewing is
required. There was never a time when we needed the show more than
