After two failed marriages, a sister's betrayal, and a broken childhood, Danielle has all but given up on her dreams of stardom.

Cliched, Excruciating, Disappointing, Slow, Insulting

See it if You want to support someone involved with the production.

Don't see it if You have anything else to do with your time. Cliched view of prostitution set to insulting songs that are poorly sung with no arc. Why?

Ambitious, Great singing, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy a good solo artist taking her character on a quick trip of ups and downs with 19 interesting songs, well sung and accompanied.

Don't see it if you expect everything to be clearly fed to you. You'll have to fill in the blanks as this all happens in one-hour!

Ambitious, Confusing, Indulgent, Pompous, Tries too hard

See it if you have an hour to waste.

Don't see it if you value your time. The show attempts to be deep and poetic, but it comes across as indulgent, muddled, and confusing.

Also The logline describes a woman who spirals into prostitution and drugs.... Read more Read less

Raunchy, Slow, Excruciating, Banal, Boring,

See it if U want a vu of the bottom of the barrel that feels like an eternity. Luckily the costumer had the good taste to put panties on the performer

Don't see it if You can find anything else to do and/or have any respect for the $ spent on the production that should b given to an emergency fund instead.

Cliched, Banal

See it if Well, the music wasn't bad

Don't see it if You get tired of cliched songs about how much men suck

Disappointing, Not failure but low aim is the crime, and this weil/brecht type song cycle by a down and out streetwalker is no crime. ms tucker is too healthy and wholesome looking for the part and her voice lacks grit. amy winehouse would've nailed this.

See it if You would like to see and hear an interesting failure.

Don't see it if You have no patience for something worthwhile that falls short of the mark.

Cliched, Confusing, Good singing, Indulgent

See it if you want to hear good singing in what essentially amounts to a song series. There is not really a plot, and no particular conflict.

Don't see it if you hated Come Light My Cigarette. While this is a clear improvement, the central character and musical style are overwhelmingly similar.

Confusing, Good musicians, Good singing, Good scenic design

See it if I felt that this musical production is at an early stage, that it needs more work. It has the potential to be much better.

Don't see it if if you demand PERFECTION from the musical theatre, and do not care to see the stars of tomorrow.

Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if Maybe good singing?

Don't see it if This was a hot mess. Not as bad as light my cigarette (same author).

Confusing, Dated, Disappointing, Excruciating, Terrible writing

See it if you can appreciate an actress who does her best with an atrocious script. Otherwise don't waste your money.

Don't see it if you require anything resembling coherent or quality writing to enjoy a show.

Also The actress does what she can with a truly abominable script. I give h... Read more Read less

Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Boring

See it if You got a free ticket and were curious about seeing a one woman show.

Don't see it if You have money to spend on something worth seeing. Boring, plotless, annoying show. The man next to me fell asleep in the first 5 minutes.

Also The actress is clearly talented and has a lovely singing voice but she... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if If you like one woman variety style musicals.

Don't see it if If you want a strong score, story, and performance. This show is incredibly lacking in all of those aspects.

Great acting, Great singing, Great writing

See it if you have an hour to kill, have discounted tickets and/or enjoy a good short musical.

Don't see it if you are looking for more content and expect a production longer than 55 minutes.

Entertaining, Great singing

See it if Chloe Tucker has a great voice & keeps your attention thru out the play. The play will make u think about how an event can change your life

Don't see it if U don't like musicals or a 1 woman show

Confusing, Great singing, Edgy, Quirky

See it if You want to see a talented girl do her very best to turn something pretty awful into something watchable...

Don't see it if There's any thing else to see...

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Great singing, Delightful

See it if Like the life of a prostitute, with no one to depend on.

Don't see it if Dont like the life of a a lonely prostitute, that only comes out a night, and being thearten by drug dealers.

Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You've time to pass and can get cheap tickets.

Don't see it if You expect Broadway standards.

Also Bearing in mind this is off-off Broadway it was a perfectly pleasant w... Read more Read less

Great singing, Great staging, Raunchy, Resonant, Slow

See it if like one woman musical. Great singing. Short production.

Don't see it if want substantial content, dialogue and comprehensive story line.

Great singing, Intense, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You like singing. Don't care about Scenery or like imaginary plots.

Don't see it if You expect a grand production. Talented actor, great voice, but no real transition to a plot.

Disappointing, Ambitious, Good singing, Short, Underwritten

See it if Like one person plays that are short, 50 minutes, that don' t delve too deep into the subject.

Don't see it if If you are looking for any type of glitz. This is a simple one woman show that fails in my opinion to capture the story.

Cliched, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You're interested in faux-edgy cliches.

Don't see it if You want to see something well-written.

Disappointing, Edgy, Interesting, Go see it with low expectations ...

See it if You are ok with a 1 person show , musical ( female )

Don't see it if You are looking for a big production or want something happy / unlifting

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Dizzying, Quirky

See it if I can't give you a good reason to see this...I'm sorry, I really tried

Don't see it if Don't do it

Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Slow

See it if you want a place to take a nap. this was so boring. see it if you like mostly singing and not much monologue.

Don't see it if you have better things to do with your time. you actually want real character and plot development. you want an actual theatre experience
