Absolutely astonishing-hard to define, contained elements of human pathos combined with hilarious comedy, mimicry, self-deprecation. She's amazing, in short-would highly recommend this. A tour de force

Extraordinary performance by the actor. Her presentation of male and female characters from very different backgrounds and their stories was absolutely amazing. It played on every emotion, by turns hilarious, poignant, and very insightful. We...continued

Wow, what a talent. This is a can't miss show. Her ability to embody so many different characters is like nothing I've ever seen. It will also give you plenty to talk about at drinks afterwards.

Weedman has a very mobile face, and her changes of voice, expression, and body posture help her "inhabit" various different roles. However, the play offers little insight into the "untold stories" of the three incarcerated women described. ...continued

A fun show with a packed house. Acerbic humor and observations by our protagonist, Lauren Weedman, who does dialogue with her impersonations quite effectively!

Lauren Weedman seamlessly becomes multiple characters in this often poignant piece. Following her journey of self discovery is a joy to watch.

Lauren Weedman is extremely talented. I loved the show. However, my mom had trouble following. It's very fast-paced, and for someone who speaks English as a second language, or who has trouble with fast-paced conversation, it may be unsatisfying....continued

One person shows can be tricky. Lauren Weedman is a very talented performer but the writing was a bit too expository and the direction was lacking.

Bust was one of the best performances I've seen in a long time. Lauren is enormously gifted as an actress and as a playwright demonstrates a knack for translating personal experiences into a whimsical yet poignant story full of emotions without...continued

Lauren gets every character just right - pitch, body language, dialect. She becomes countless different people - individuals, not stereotypes - right before your eyes! And to top it off, the message is very moving.

Would have liked to have rated it higher but a guest of The Studio Theatre or Lauren Weedman (Reserved Seat - Mills) laughed so loud and so inappropriately the moment Ms. Weedman walked on stage. It was as if a laugh track was out of sync. Very...continued
