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

Disappointing, Slow, Edgy

See it if This tried to shed a light on some dark sides of society.

See it if JUST DONT!

Don't see it if You want to keep your sanity. The actress and the singing was about the only good thing about this show. The storyline just felt forgotten.

Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Ambitious

See it if Like small productions and only want to devote an hour to the theatre; strong singing from Chloe Tucker

Don't see it if You want a well written musical, songs are nice but don't propel the plot enough to compensate for an overwritten yet underdeveloped book

Insipid, Excruciating, Banal, Cliched, Boring

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

Ambitious, Banal, Indulgent, Slow, One note

See it if Cant recommend this, aside from very good singing by the lead

Don't see it if you demand an intriguing plot, and more than one note acting (most of the songs are the lead being angry at men)
