Riveting, Relevant, Resonant, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you like wonderful family storytelling done with humor and grace, enhanced by songs that are sung well and backed by talented musicians.

Don't see it if you are looking for a big musical - this is more a cabaret performance using a main stage and a small alternate stage.

Profound, Resonant, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if you want to hear a beautifully told story of an immigrant's experience that's injected with humor and lovely singing.

Don't see it if you want an elaborate production or comfortable seats. This is a simply staged show with a relatable story. Seating is uncomfortable.

Good voice, Relevant, Slow, Charming

See it if you'd like to spend 90 minutes with a warm emigrant from Argentina. Some Spanish, but most words are translated. A lot of songs, most good.

Don't see it if you dislike solo shows. Maybe could have a song or two cut? Best song: Argentina.

Relevant, Overrated, Indulgent, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if You like one-woman shows in a bar setting. It is an interesting immigrant story told in song [at least 1/3 in Spanish].

Don't see it if You are expecting a theater [this is a bar in the basement on hard chairs]; You don't understand Spanish [never stated in reviews]

"What is remarkable about 'South' is just how familiar the story feels, even to those of us who have never gone through the immigration process...At the center is the radiant presence of Iriondo herself, an engaging performer with a flavorful story to tell. For those of us who live far away from family, it’s a bittersweet taste that is instantly recognizable."

Talkin' Broadway

“The production...evokes the homey intimacy of Iriondo's wistful account, adorned with warm draperies, well-worn folksy throw rugs, and even a residential mailbox that offers the constant and hopeful anticipation of letters from home. For ninety minutes, the venue feels less like a club but a nostalgia-imbued living room.”

“This is a story of a life universally lived by most people. There are no great tragedies or great traumas to overcome. There is only growing up, being cared for, and caring for others that makes for a life of belonging, an understanding of home, and an evening of warmth.”

New York Theater

The delicious home-baked goods and the delightful homegrown songs give a homey feel to the immigrant story Iriondo is telling at the cabaret-style Huron Club downstairs at SoHo Playhouse. But there are two things to know about that story to best appreciate “South.” The songs drive the story, not the other way around. And Iriondo is not telling her own story, but that of a fictional character.

“What’s missing from Iriondo’s songs, and from her narrative, is a specificity that would lift the material above the surface level...She has our attention, but she seems to be holding back what it felt like to live her story. Still, ‘South’ offers a pleasant diversion with a talented songstress.”
