I thought that she did an excellent job with her energy level and keeping us engaged. There was a lot of smart humor and a few poignant moments. I enjoyed listening to her story and I will remember some of the lines and "issues" she went...continued

I enjoyed the show. Polling the audience for laughter was a bit old. I had read the book and also have gone to India so a lot of what she was talking about hit home. I had lots of smiles and a number of really good laughs.

This is a lengthy show, and I appreciate how much Alicia works for it... but I found only bits of it funny. Perhaps I just had a hard time relating to her "search." Maybe I would have felt differently had I known what the chants meant... I don't...continued

Very funny and poignant. Enjoyed the chanting prior to the event. She was great at acting out all of the different people and engaging the audience.

I liked the show and had a lot of belly laughs. Alicia is a talented performer and gives her all in this performance. I would recommend it for those who are looking for a light fun show about different cultures - like Jewish and Indian, and...continued

I'd give this a 3.5 star rating, and I am a very tough reviewer. I took two women, one an avid fan of "Eat, Pray, Love", and the other determined to spend a year in India, and both loved it. Alicia puts herself out there and describes the good,...continued

Tone down and shorten or lose the warm up chants .They were too loud and long.
We would have preferred a more meditative chant. Also, the mention of the Chabad jews was brief and we would have liked to know more about them and Alicia;s...continued

It was a wonderful fun performance. Alcia is a terrific physical comic working her face and body to illuminate what she was saying.
The chanting was a surprise. Definitely could have been advertised and a little shorter. All in all , it wad a...continued

Alicia is a very funny stand up and calls on here experiences in India and in life, trying to find herself. She was great, i am surprised i never heard of her before.

The problem was and i don't know if Alicia had anything to do with this, is...continued

Alicia's performance was excellent! Definitely a fun "girls night out" event. We had a chatty audience member which is VERY distracting and rude, but Alicia even worked that into the performance and got her to quiet down for a bit!

I have been to India twice and could definitely identify with many of the hilarious encounters Alicia had along the way but I also think anyone could identify with parts of this universal search for meaning and purpose. Kudos to Alicia for...continued

This was not nearly as funny as several reviewers made it out to be. I had high expectations based on all the glowing reviews. In the end, I got a few chuckles out of it, but I enjoyed the complimentary chai and sweets more than the show itself....continued

Amusing yes, but she's just not that funny. The Sanskrit kirtan chanting led by Mirabai went on too long (30 minutes) at the beginning.

This was a great show. I think being either Jewish or Indian added to the laughs.
