Ambitious, Confusing, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you like the Folk Rock music of Lisa Bonner. This is a concert with biographical dialogue between songs; band members play the parts

Don't see it if you expect a play. The characters are thinly presented. The plot points are described more than shown. Songs don't always match situations.

Ambitious, A few songs entertained

See it if You want an 80min. feminist manifesto w music & very enthusiastic cast. Lisa Bonner has a following & they seemed to love every minute.

Don't see it if Wish the musicians were better actors, the songs didn't all sound the same, U have trouble hearing or don't like shows in nontrad. spaces. Read more

Don't see it if You want some deep meaning

Don't see it if You are anti gay rights.

Sincere, Ambitious, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you like shows that delve deeply into a character and tell about their life.

Don't see it if you're looking for epic songs or a large show. I also would not recommend this production for anyone with any hearing difficulties. Read more
