This would be a fabulous opportunity for you to picket and pass out leaflets describing Bill Wilson in those loving terms of yours, JR Harris. Wouldn't it be worth a round trip ticket to fuck up this experience for anyone attending?

Hope they serve drinks at this theater.

The Fort Myers, Florida production of "PASS IT ON...AN EVENING WITH BILL W. AND DR. BOB" is till going strong and teaching would be AA Sponsors how to talk people into believing and admitting they are an Alcoholic and god has nothing to do with the rituals, ceremonies and praying in Alcoholics Anonymous. With Broadway actors who have made a profession out of portraying how to coerce prospects for AA, the show is going strong and does appear to be a first class act. Don't forget that Tickets are $20 and a fund raising benefit for Y.A.N.A club of Fort Myers and NCADD, Inc.

12 more steps taken toward debunking AA myths

A new drama sheds light on 'Bill W.' and 'Dr. Bob,' the beloved founders of Alcoholics Anonymous.
7:02 PM, Jul. 26, 2012

As a recovering alcoholic, Gary Kimble admits he does everything to excess.

That includes his own recovery.

So Kimble attends 12-step recovery meetings every day. He’s read hundreds of books about Alcoholics Anonymous founders Bill Wilson and Bob Smith. He’s visited the founders’ former homes, AA museums and the AA archives in Akron, Ohio.

And now he’s turned AA into a full-time career.

Kimble co-starred in the AA drama “Bill W. and Dr. Bob” four years ago at Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, and heco-wrote and co-stars in a new sequel, “Pass It On.” That sequel plays today through Sunday at The Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers.

“It’s unbelievable,” Kimble says. “This really touches a nerve in people. And it all started for us in Fort Myers.”

There’s obviously an audience for AA-related theater. Kimble and co-writer/performer Richard Springle took their version of the off-Broadway hit “Bill W. and Dr. Bob” on the road in 2010, and they saw sold-out shows across the country.

“Pass It On” is already shaping up to be an even bigger hit.

After announcing the new show in January, Kimble says, his email in-box was flooded with about 3,000 requests for performances throughout the United States – not to mention Dubai, Ireland, New Zealand, The Philippines, Argentina and many other places.

And that’s before most people had even seen the thing. The show goes on the road next month.

“It’s ridiculous,” Kimble says. “It’s just coming in a flood.”

Springle takes that analogy even further.

“We’re riding a tsunami,” he says, “and we best not look back. We just try to keep looking down the nose of that (surf)board.”

In “Pass It On,” Springle and Kimble star as the two former drunks who founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. Both actors are recovering addicts themselves.

The play "Pass It On" put on by the Theatre Conspiracy in Naples Florida had a sold out seating on Friday July 27, 2012. As expected AA members came to bask in the fictional remake of AA lore where Bill W and Dr. Bob talk to each other on Mothers Day May 12, 1935 at the home of Henrietta Seiberling and devise a way to talk people into believing the only way to stop drinking is to chant to a pagan "higher power" and join their cult. Reminiscent of tours of the Spiritualist compound of Stepping Stones in Westchester County in New York, people arrived at the play and wept and shared prospect hunting stories. They also most likely left with more ways to talk people into joining the cult that Bill Wilson started.

Thanks JR and Alkie, this play is wonderful. Of course it depends upon the actors but if you can refrain from being to critical, it is decent.
JR, once again thanks for advertising this event, people need to know about the creative art AA has to offer. The gifted artists that have populated AA are legendary. Guess what? They are still here....:)
Conan, you are so gullible. We are going to have fun together...:)

Your writing is like a fingerprint.

The truth shall set you free! :)

AA is a religious cult dressed up to look like a treatment for alcoholism.
