What a wonderful experience this was! I saw the show on April 25. The first moments were gentle and sweet, and I wasn't sure where it was going; suddenly I felt that I was on board a train that was chugging down the rails straight towards a...continued

This one-woman play was outstanding--the performer spoke as several different people in her life. She did that well. First-come, first-served seating--we sat on the first row, which I like to do. The only negative was that we watched several...continued
