I saw Debra's show almost ten years ago. It was basically the same story line with added enhancements. I was so thrilled again to reconnect with Debra and see how her performance has grown and taken shape.

Debra is brilliant on how she...continued

It is the best solo performance I've ever seen. She is so talented; she should be performing in front of a huge audience. For those of us who are chasing the American dream, you can relate to what she has gone through.

She is incredibly...continued

The first thing I did when I got home was google Pigeon Town, Jamaica. The second thing I did was reflect upon the awesomeness that is Jamaica, Farewell. It’s hard to pull-off an 85 minute one-woman show. And Debra Ehrhardt didn’t only pull it...continued

We really enjoyed the performance. Debra is a compelling story teller. We would recommend this one-woman play which will make you laugh but also move you from beginning to end.

Amazing one woman show. Debra holds your attention from start to finish. My date is originally from Jamaica and he loved it as well. I would recommend everyone to go see it. Looking forward to seeing this made into a movie.
