Schizophrenic, Weird, Dizzying, Energetic, Zany

See it if Young actress goes through a wild schizophrenic identity crisis & takes us along for the ride. Bursting w/energy & surprisingly inspiring.

Don't see it if You have to like surrealism. Comes to an interesting conclusion about what it means to be “normal”. Read more

Strong acting, Well staged, Absorbing, Dizzying, Clever

See it if you'd like a story abt Maia's immigr'n, acting, & mental illness, written/performed by Maia. Bare stage w/red chairs. Strg ensemble/staging.

Don't see it if you want linear expositn (choppy, wanders in time). Ending is abrupt; how did Maia get better? Engaging thru-out. Hope Maia gets film role.

Great staging, Intense, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if The true story encompasses themes of identity, immigration,cliches on immigrants,mental illness&also facuses on the pursuit of the Am dream.

Don't see it if Despite the interesting themes,this isn't an emotionally stimulating play.It could be more relatable to foreign actors living in the US tho.

Edgy, Dizzying, Ambitious, Clever

See it if The acting was good. The storyline was unique.

Don't see it if You mind watching a very indulgent story about seeking stardom. Mental illness triggers.
