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.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great dancing, Charming

See it if you liked the book Anne of Green Gables or any of Lucy Maud Montgomery's works, intimate shows, & stories about girlhood/growing up

Don't see it if you don't like small shows. The theater is up 3 flights of stairs, also.

"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."
