Ambitious, Edgy, Thought-provoking

Appealing character, Appreciate the effort, Not very funny, Slow at times, Routine

See it if you appreciate an appealing performer's effort and a one person show about dealing with a loved one's terminal illness.

Don't see it if you expect a comedian to be funny rather than delve into the sad situation about the effects of a wife's illness on a husband and daughter.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Funny, Great performance

See it if You're up for a piece of good work in service of good works. Koesters is terrific telling this true tale of an onset of Parkinson's Disease.

Don't see it if No reason not to. Well written and performed, its humor is uplifting and goes a long way to raising an awareness of this incurable disease.
