Elizabeth Wine's one-woman show explores how much mindfulness and music can do to calm an anxiety-ridden mind.

... Read more

'I'm Mindful...Of My Anxiety' explores the conflicts that arise when the quest for focus, clarity, and calm collides head-on with an increasingly frantic world. This personal search by one woman is at once comical and uplifting as she desperately tries to juggle the demands of modern life while keeping her sanity. Along the way, she gets some help from yoga, Beethoven, and Joe DiMaggio.

"Entertaining from beginning to end. In her performance, Ms. Wine proves to be a charming and warm presence on stage, often proving to be successful in getting audience members to laugh, while consistently keeping them engaged. The use of dance and movement adds to the overall performance and the experience of the show...Bound to make you laugh at times, while also being potentially relatable to some audience members."

Hi! Drama

"Ms. Wine takes you through her journey with thoroughness and often very amusing scenes...She is very good at playing multiple roles...There is something endearing about her as an actress; her vulnerability in opening up her inner world, and the intense description of how it feels to be constantly trying to absorb details and facts is very genuine..She and her director (Ashley Wren Collins) have put thought and care into this production."

"An interesting and earnest portrait of one woman’s struggles...Elizabeth Wine is relatable, if also somewhat of a cautionary tale...She does some physical reenactments of her experiences, but most interesting may be the quieter moments, as she sits in front of her laptop, ever more relaxed, trying to conquer her busy mind by focusing on Beethoven. In the end, if nothing else, this piece offers hope." Full Review

Disappointing, Interesting subject, Story is too repetitive

See it if Like solo shows written by the performer. There's some insight about what it's like to have anxiety, but story falls flat.

Don't see it if Your mind wanders easily. The actor doesn't have good vocal range and after awhile, you're fighting sleep. The direction does not help.

Also Saw this mid-October at the Medicine Show Theater. Fair warning - it's... Read more Read less

Dizzying, Relevant, Confusing, Excruciating

See it if U don't mind bad direction.Actress moves her hands 2 much + rushes through the script missing all da opportunities for da audience to laugh

Don't see it if U can't watch one person show doing charaters that looses their accents or doesn't have a clear speech.

Quirky, Confusing, Disappointing, Cliched, Fluffy

See it if you want to see modern anxiety issues explored with humor.

Don't see it if you are irked by vocal non-training. Or if cultural appropriation bastardization is part of the circular loop related to anxiety.

Intelligent, Must see, Refreshing, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You like great storytelling and a unique voice. Or if you like to laugh and learn. As great as the acting is, the script is even better.
