This was a very cute show. Maria Menozzi is a very funny and talented woman - I really enjoyed her show.

Creative rendering of her experienxces and travails to get to her place of development today. Wanted to hear something about Lilly, since the program references Lily's major importance to the Maria!

Very enjoyable listening to her own songs and stories. She deserved a larger audience but those of us who were there had a good time!

Quotes & Highlights

“The stock elements of Menozzi’s show are unexpectedly leavened by undercurrents of pathos and wise melancholy — a rarity in this kind of one-person effort.” —LA Weekly
