Venue was easy to find, intimate, very comfortable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was convenient and reasonably priced. Dress to me, was business casual and the audience adhered respectfully to it. Great time. Highly recommended.

Funny, pokes gentle fun at the full range of disconnection that is our norm these days, and evokes compassion about parenting, dysfunction, distractability, and the real challenges of attempting to be wholly human and present when it matters. Go!
