Annie Abbott is an amazing actress. She was able to bring so much of her past to life, and in a way that it all perfectly fit together to become her present. The show was thoughtful, touching, funny, and extremely well done, and we enjoyed it...continued

Sorry, did not enjoy this. From the write-up, I was expecting a comedy, and it just wasn't. It made me sad. This wasn't the experience I was hoping for.

Annie Abbott's life experience has been pretty much like most people's. She's had sorrows and joys but nothing that warrants a one-woman show other than pure conceit. I was too polite to allow myself to fall asleep. YAWN!
