Masterful, Riveting, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like one-person shows or if you want to see a masterful interpretation by Tovah Feldshuh. She really is remarkable in this role.

Don't see it if the one-person format doesn't appeal to you. The set-up is rather awkward, as is some of the business of packing. But excellent acting.
