Clever, Poignant, Resonant, Must see, Great acting

See it if you love to get your catharsis on in the theatre and/or if you just like plain-ole good acting. Jenny is STUNNING.

Don't see it if you don't like one-person shows. But, maybe still see this one anyway.

The New York Times
August 16th, 2016

"An autobiographical tale of female empowerment, it’s told from too great an emotional remove, with more obfuscation than is helpful."

Theatre is Easy
August 13th, 2016

"A show that’s, by necessity, all about the performer. Luckily, Jenny Macdonald is committed and compelling as she shares her story. The narrative, though occasionally saggy, is etched in enough detail to offer the pleasure of a good yarn—or a relatable fable, complete with 'a queen, a princess, a devil, and the truest love'—but spare enough at the essential places to leave certain questions unanswered, ones that may well settle on you on your journey home."

NY Theatre Guide
August 23rd, 2016

"Macdonald is an agile, comedic, raucous actress who drags you along like a racing leprechaun in search of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…Joe Salvatore tells her story with his particularly glorious theatrical style. This collaboration has proved to be a great synergy between transformative truth telling and theatricality. The piece is beautifully imagined, perfectly executed, and crafted with wit and joy…We need more of these 21st century feminist fairy tales."
