Funny, Great writing, Delightful, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if you want to treat yourself to seeing a comedy legend tell her sweet story... found it touching and sweet. She's amazing!

Don't see it if you do not enjoy a light of theater - and do not have an ounce of sentimentality to see a memoir performed by a legend in her mid 80's...

Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining

See it if enjoy tales of hollywood - enjoy stand up comedy (albeit more old fashioned than up to date) - enjoy a laugh - you're a fan of renee

Don't see it if looking for up-to-date contemporary comedy - looking for a deep meaning of life drama - looking for acting depth

Enjoyable, Interesting, Pleasant, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy hearing first-person stories from the history of hollywood told in an entertaining and humorous fashion.

Don't see it if You are looking for a full-fledged production rather than a humorous memoir read aloud. We enjoyed it but didn't think it great theater.

Refreshing, Great writing, Hilarious, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you grew up in the 40s and 50s and enjoy feeling nostalgic, you enjoy seeing, in the flesh, a personality you know from movies and tv

Don't see it if you grew up after 1990 unless you are drawn to older movies and tv, you have no patience for hearing a charming personality's memories
