Parking, seat, all were perfect. The play was entertaining and informative. Her acting was SUPERB!! It lasts a bit long but
it was worth it! She should be invited to every school in the state.

A must see for anyone who cares where this country has been and where it is going. Makes you want to read more about each of the women portrayed.

The show was fantastic; Sandy Brown did an outstanding job in portraying all of her characters. I would highly suggest attending the show. I would go again if given the opportunity.
