Slow, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Nonlinear, Great voice

See it if You enjoy one person autobiographical shows acted by a talented artist playing all the roles in her story.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy religious references, nonlinear stories or when the artist burst into song without understanding why. It was a bit slow.
