Well acted, high energy, alternately funny and moving, and very spunky autobiographical performance.

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.

I loved her high energy level, but found the progression of the material uneven, thus tricky to follow. Note: Staff made us wait too long to enter the theater and the performance started 15 minutes late.

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!

Annie is a delightful, energetic, charismatic woman. She delivers an intimate and entertaining piece of her life experiences! She played to a very enthusastic full house! Three curtain calls!

A wonderful show! I laughed, was moved to tears and laughed again! A theatrical experience I would recommend everyone go to see! One of those shows you know will be picked up in a bigger venue and be a raging success!!!

I loved this one-woman show! I took my girlfriend for her Birthday and there were multiple themes in the play that resonated with both of us. Annie Abbott shared a wide range of emotions with energy and humor making the audience feel comfortable...continued

"Giving Up Is Hard To Do" written by and performed by Annie Abbott was excellent. My wife and I, along with the entire audience, were moved by this heart warming and life affirming performance. I highly recommend it.
