See it if you like a touching story beautifully rendered. Song lyrics are well written, singing excellent and the acting & staging way above average

Don't see it if if you don’t like solo shows, but like I said this one is above average.

September 22nd, 2015

"The honesty in which the story is told is heartwarming and a lovely reminder that just like falling off a bike, we must dust ourselves off and get back in the game after a setback. Barkan explores the depth of her emotions as she hides away to deal with it all. Her Irish grandmother comes to her and reminds her of all the chutzpah she possesses. In the end, the twist on the uplifting personal success story is a fun and innovative one, as passion and strength re-emerge. Join the ride!"

For a previous production

"Barkan conceived and bravely performs the solo role in this well packaged and equally well delivered 90-minute snapshot of a complicatedly simple, grunge-era New York life. The production’s musicality binds its quirkier parts with nostalgic bits for a harmonious fusion."
