"Brave to the point of madness...Gannon proceeds to alternate doing dance numbers with some acrobatics and magic tricks. She goes out of her way to look amateurish and dumpy...What is impressive about her show is that she does about 25 minutes of this shtick without ever stopping. Yes, she is intentionally performing badly, but her agility is something to marvel at. The piece went by in a flash. And you can’t ask more than that from an inept clown act." Full Review

See it if You're looking for sweet dance vignettes with a comedic edge.

Don't see it if You want a narrative.

See it if You like fun! It's a clown show, a dance show, and a theater piece simultaneously.

Don't see it if You hate fun.
