In a word: Terrific! I would definitely recommend it to just about anyone. The beginning is a tad slow, but once it gets going it is riveting.

Very enjoyable especially from about the middle of "the story" to the end. No scenery to speak of but you don't miss it. Anyone who can memorize that much unbroken dialogue and assume various personalities is to be admired. Perfect size theater...continued

It was my third time seeing this incredible performance, and Debra gets even better every time, if that were possible.I could find no room for improvement. Her performance is outstanding; dynamic, charming, funny, sometimes scary, and always...continued

Excellent !! I have been to several one-person shows, and this was amongst the most entertaining. She is an immigrant who really wanted to be in America, and we are the richer for her story.

There are not enough superlative adjectives to describe this phenomenal production. All I can say is go, go, go!

This play was just ok for me. I have seen some better and some worse.
One person plays are very hard to pull off so i commend the artist at her attempt to capture and hold the audiences attention for about 90 minutes straight with no intermission....continued

though i was hesitant because it's a one person show (and we know how those can go at times), this show was amazing from beginning to end!

Lot of talent for a little stage. Very personal theatre experience; felt as though she was talking just to me. She meets and greets her audience as you exit. Talking with her after the show was a bonus.

This play was absolutely gripping. Debra Ehrhardt did a fabulous job in providing the audience a glimpse into her very determined journey; what an amazing story.

I'm baffled by all the 4-star reviews. This was reasonably entertaining but nothing approaching "stunning." Debra is likeable and energetic but does not posess "amazing gifts of mimicry." Her characters are mostly cliche, some are barely different...continued

Wow, I feel very disappointed by Goldstar members on this! I thought it was okay but I didn't find it as brilliant as everyone thought. I thought it was an interesting story but there was no character growth per se.

One woman shows are my...continued
