How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I usually enjoy one woman shows and this was one of the best. Ms. Fisher has taken the dysfunctional details of her life and transformed them into a comedic masterpiece. The writing is superb and her presence is totally authentic. With a heavy dose of self-accepting pathos she says "my marriage was going downhill faster than we could lower our standards" everyone howled with recognition. Judging from the audience reaction Ms. Fisher has clearly hit a homerun in demonstrating that there is strength in vulnerability.
