Earhart is a multi-talented performer with a compelling tale to tell. This one -woman show has it all: humor, pathos, and intelligence.

I would have given it 3.5 stars had that been possible. The play is too long: the beginning too slow and the end too "Perils of Pauline" exaggerated and predictable. I thought bringing her "American" son on stage to sing "Day O" as if she needed...continued

My family attended Jamaica Farewell and loved it! Very well done. A true artist that captured the audience from start to finish. The colorful portrayal was as if you were in Jamica living throught the story. The 85mins zoomed by. WELL DONE!!!
