We went Right Next Door to Brownstone Bistro after (kitchen still open) and our Burgers were delicious. We were not up for larger meals that late.

The play beautifully protrayed influential African American women in our rich heritage. I was pleasantly surprised with the bits of factual knowledge woven into the play. A must see for all, and highly recommended for our youth.

“Ms. Brown is herself a pioneer of today, forging her own artistic creation … in a town full of celebrities … she herself is breaking new ground.” —examiner.com

“I just saw this great performance, Oh, Yes She Did by Sandy Brown, covering important African American women throughout history. It was quite incredible. I’ve always been an avid supporter of civil rights and this performance has only strengthened my feminist and egalitarian beliefs. I now have a huge list of books to read by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and many others. It will probably take me years to read them all, but that’s a price I’m all too willing to pay. So I say: “Power to the people!!!” —Feminist Humor Blog
