This is one of the best one woman performances I have ever seen. The show brought out every emotion. I laughed, cried and pondered. I would love to see it again and have recommended it to my friends and family.
Thank you.

I really enjoyed Ms Ehrhardt. She was incredible in her one woman show. I would differently go to see it again.

It was amazing! Funny, gripping and such a story of hope. If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it. A must see.

Jamaica Farewell was awesome! I admit I was a little leary about it being a one woman show but Debra Ehrhardt kept us in the moment. She only had about 3 props and music that was precisely appropriate for every scene. My husband, son and future...continued
