"Metrikin commands the solo genre well: she is deft and sometimes very funny…Where the show falls short is in its engagement with Fellini as anything other than the man at the end of this trail. Scenes are broken up with quotes spoken by Fellini about the importance of silence, about the use of dream and memory and the process of making. But, De Lancey and Metrikin haven’t let the ideas permeate their piece as much as they could have…Altogether, it was a light and enjoyable evening."

“Director Guy de Lancey has woven Metrikin’s moving text with potent imagery that makes you feel like you are inside a particularly surreal dream…The one that stays with you upon waking, walks with you through the day, and begs you to find its secret message hidden in the folds of its nocturnal metaphors…It leaves you feeling slightly melancholic but also rejoicing in the truly fantastical world in which we live if you just open your eyes, even when asleep."
