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

For mature audiences only.

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, 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

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.

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.

Great singing, Disappointing, Banal, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if Want to listen to an actress sing some songs on a stage about her hard life and her dreams, how she's supposed to be living. If no don't go.

Don't see it if aren't up to see one women show, there is no history, there is no real link between songs, it seems that they only chose a bunch of songs.

Also The lead actress is good, she has a great voice, and she does what she... Read more Read less

See it if you're a masochist. Who got a free ticket.

Don't see it if you're not into a really poorly-written 45-minute 2-dimensional show.

Also No one knows who writer/producer/director Arnold L. Cohen is. There's ... Read more Read less
