I enjoyed her performance. She is very talented. Agree with another reviewer that it took a little bit to get into it. Seems like she found her rhythm as it went along. I then wish it had lasted longer. Her characters are very well done. I...continued

Not for me. Almost from the opening moment, I had an idea this show wasn't going to be for me and that's exactly what happened. I simply didn't find the acting or the story very engaging. I did enjoy a couple fleeting moments of the different...continued

I found this performer quite mesmerizing in her physical movements as well as in her storytelling. However, for me the final effect of the entire performance left me a bit drained instead of drained but feeling that she had reached an emotional...continued

fabulous acting. She takes on about 10 different roles and you actually believe she IS that person. Don't miss!

Safiya is a very talented performer! Although the beginning of the show was a little slow (and Safiya seemed a little nervous), as the show progressed, Safiya became more confident, and she "channeled" the various people she has interacted with,...continued

Excellent show. Ms. Martinez is a great story teller and all of her characters had definition. Her experiences with teaching in the New York school system were vividly retold. I imagine she planted a great many seeds in the minds and hearts of the...continued

A very promising beginning. I look forward to seeing her next show to see where she's headed when she gets beyond the autobiographical.

Safiya Martinez is a personable storyteller. We meet students, friends, and even her mother, in this monologue about her trial by fire as a new teacher in one of New York City's toughest schools!

Martinez slips in sophisticated references while...continued

We thought she was wonderful. Those New York accents made me miss the City. Very clever. I'd like to see more of her.

Anything at The Marsh is worth seeing. They are a hidden gem in the heart of the Mission where you can see great one-person shows for $20. They are currently facing financial difficulties due to a last minute show cancellation. Please go out...continued

This is an extraordinarily powerful show by an extremely talented young performer. Safiya gives 110% of herself to presenting a large number and wide range of real-life characters who have shaped her life. In particular, her presentation of...continued

Such energy to sustain for over an hour! Safiya is a real talent. The story is compelling and very real, and Safiya changes from character to character with ease and magic. I would definitely recommend this performance.

VAYA Safiya! Your character portrayals were reminders of simuliar experiences in the Lower East Side. However, my Puerto Rican college roomate from The South Bronx ( now an MD) and I also recall "Roots" Mentors, Teachers, Familia, and Neighbors....continued

Safiya is a brilliant artist. Her writing, acting and grace as she moves on stage are breathtaking as she invites the audience to go with her on an amazing , funny and moving visit to her life and work in the Bronx. Wow!
We left the theater on...continued

I enjoyed the show but was so glad that I did not take my teenage daughter. A little over the top with the language and sexual explicitness, although it's probably a real portrayal of her experiences.
