Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining, Hilarious, Refreshing

See it if You like v funny fast paced solo show about a German Jew growing up in a "not normal" v dramatic family. Great physical storytelling/accents

Don't see it if You don't like one woman shows- tho she plays all the characters really well and over the top. You want a classic staged drama. Read more

Clever, Enchanting, Hilarious, Masterful, Must see

See it if Like Tracey Ullman, Lily Tomlin? Catch Lucie's wacky, serio-comic, showbiz family. Interesting, insightful: it's not Fun with Adolph.

Don't see it if You want a sitcom, or if you don't like memoirs or standup or high-energy one-woman shows. Otherwise, it's terrific.

See it if you like one woman shows. Ms. Pohl is quite talented in portraying a myriad of characters replete with different accents and mannerisms.

Don't see it if you are looking for a big production with intense.themes. This show explores important issues in a lighthearted way.

See it if You enjoy one-performer, memoir plays. You like fish out of water stories. You want a play about growing up told in an unique way.

Don't see it if You don't like memoir stories. You want a play w/bigger production values.

The New York Times
July 16th, 2017

"Pohl proves to be a delightful raconteur. Her story, though, ultimately is less engaging than she is, growing more amorphous as it goes along and slowing to a stop rather than reaching a peak...The piece is, essentially, about trying to find herself and a sense of stability in an unconventional family...It’s energetically told and fun to watch, but in the end it’s not especially traumatic, or unusual, which also makes it something less than revelatory."

"Her generally intriguing narrative is mainly concerned with the experiences of an eight-year-old German child emigrating from East Berlin to New York...Pohl switches in dizzyingly rapid succession from one characterization to another…Much of this is definitely intriguing but, with a few exceptions, it's more smile than laugh inducing. Those smiles are more likely to be ignited by how Pohl expresses herself than by what she expresses…I loved Lucie and liked 'Hi, Hitler."

For a previous production

“Lucie Pohl is a very animated and expressive actress full of charisma and energy. However, her stories don't captivate the attention of the audience nor do they contain real life lessons. She fails to properly develop the idiosyncrasies and personalities of her characters. I left the show not having been emotionally moved, not really knowing much about the people in her life, and most devastatingly, not really having laughed all that much, which was quite disappointing.”

London is Funny
July 13th, 2014
For a previous production

"Incorporates numerous Pohl family members, dozens of different characters, and more accents than it would seem possible for one person to cram into a hour-long story...This is no softly-softly voyage of self-discovery. Instead, Pohl is a smart-talking performer who imitates, and tackles adroitly, the eccentricities of everyone in her life...She covers a huge range of characters. They don't all work but they are done with a passion and a gift for mimicry that sustains a high-octane show."

For a previous production

"Pohl is a master of her own unique craft. Carefully and intriguingly darting between self and character, she buzzes, flits and contorts, embodying everything, down to the most minuscule detail, portraying her real-life saga without fault or flat line...Pohl is easy to watch, lovable, crazily funny and truly entertaining as a formidable and triumphant actress who needs to continue the explosion of her comic collisions."
