Absorbing, Great staging, Quirky, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if You like true downtown theater reminiscent of Cafe Cino. Theater that is daring, honest and self revealing yet not overly polished.

Don't see it if You like plays that contain easily digestible subject matter & straight forward narratives, or if you have trouble with nude female bodies.

Great acting, Edgy, Absorbing, Enchanting, Must see

See it if you are in NYC. I know Miss Dorrepaal from Edwin Brienen's films, I was very curious to see her live on stage and she is truly brilliant!

Don't see it if I'm so enthusiastic I honestly cannot find a reason to not give it a chance but if you like dry acting it might not be for you.

"Dorepaal brings to life two women so exquisitely individuated that the memory of this magnetic, one-woman play lingers as though performed by a diverse, brilliant cast...'Almost Mata Hari' tackles issues such as loss, betrayal and guilt, but Dorepaal’s wit and timing strike the ideal balance with lightness and laughter. Self-effacing humor, dark comedy, impromptu witticisms and hilarious impersonations add yet more color to this kaleidoscopic tribute to love, truth and creativity."

"Dorrepaal is an intriguing actress...Dorrepaal is a shape-shifter as a performer...In another actor, this could prove frustrating or make her seem uncommitted to her role, but in Dorrepaal, we see a range of emotion pass across her face in a small time span. Sometimes she looks beautiful, other times tormented. This shape-shifting of emotion seems more true to life in the face of dangerous love, which heightens the senses so that desire, fear and uncertainty exist simultaneously."
