Delightful, Great acting, Entertaining, Refreshing, Great staging

See it if You enjoy non-traditional staging - all parts are played by one actor, with four dancers accompanying. Unusual, enjoyable and well-acted.

Don't see it if You are expecting a traditional show and don't like plays with music, dance and video elements.

Slow, Ambitious

See it if You love Anne of Green Gables and want to see a new take. Apparently this is 4 parts. It is a 1 woman show with 4 dancers

Don't see it if You need a full cast and don't enjoy one woman shows. Wasn't into it personally.

Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy a new look at a well-known story, and you don't mind one woman playing all of the speaking parts.

Theatre is Easy
June 15th, 2017

"Vega’s performance is a tour de force. As the only speaking character, Vega embodies Anne, her adopted parents, and all minor characters...Vega seamlessly switches from each role, making it clear who she is speaking as and who she is speaking with...Vega’s portrayal of Anne is exactly what it should be—starry-eyed, enthusiastic, and filled with joy...There are a few times when projections of thoughts, feelings, and movements are superfluous and pull focus from the actual production."
