"I was moved by the evocative performances of Gary and Richard as Bill W. and Dr. Bob. Having a vested interest in the presentations - I was relieved and delighted to experience the compassion and authenticity in their portrayals"
Penny Smith Umbertino
Dr. Bob's real life Grand Daughter

"PASS IT ON... is a must see. Nothing has helped me understand the mentality of the alcoholic as much as Gary Kimble and Richard Springle's portrayal of Bill W. and Dr. Bob"
Rev. Dr. John Vawter
Director of the National Radio Program - YOU ARE NOT ALONE

"Gary and Richard (Bill W. and Dr. Bob) amazingly bring to life the two men at the center of history's most influential recovery movement. At the end of the inspirational and entertaining performance, one leaves the theater thirsting for me."
Nick Motu
HAZELDEN Publisher and Vice President


"Richard Davis Springle is simply amazing as Dr. Bob"
Joe Gordon

"Gary is electrifying as Bill W."
Chris Silk

"Gary Kimble as Bill captures a character of tremendous charm, energy and ego. Richard Springle is equally convincing as the more down to earth Bob...and they are wonderful!"
Bill O'Neill
Collier Citizen

"With Gary Kimble as Bill W. and Richard Springle as Dr. Bob - the audicnces - both in A.A. and not - were on their feet at every performance. Gary and Richard have been the heart behind bringing this play to life for what will be thousands of people. It is a compassionate and brave thing to do"
Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey
Authors of the Off Broadway Play - Bill W. and Dr. Bob

"Alcoholism is not the kind of subject matter that has audiences beating a path to the theater door...unless Kimble and Springle are playing Bill W. and Dr. Bob. Thier performance is so riveting, so warm, funny, engaging and heartbreaking, that you will want to return over and over and over again, dragging along with you everyone you love whose life has been burdened by alcoholism. We are privileged to have them appear in our documentary - One Day At A Time.
Susan Gray
Director - of the Northern Light T.V. Documentary One Day At A Time

"Pass It On... is a very moving, enriching, personal experience for everyone who attends. The The tickets for all 7 performances were sold out within days. I believe that our agency was very fortunate to be a part of the development of this incredible play. I am a strong believer that it will spread rapidly in its following. People were so very moved by the play. Not only those in recovery, everyone who attended. One of our female clients told me afterwards “I know what they mean now by having a spiritual experience. I understand. I will never be the same". I cannot stress enough that Pass It On... will be supported; it is very powerful and basically sells its self.
Thelma Ross
CEO - The National Council On Alcoholism and Drug Dependence - Phoenix Arizona Affiliate
