Funny, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Intense, Polished

See it if you remember the era of drugs, sex and rock & roll. The plot covers these three and more with some wonderful projected photos.

Don't see it if you want a full evening of entertainment. This is only an hour long - A really groovy fun hour!

Slow, Overrated, Disappointing, Confusing, Uninteresting

See it if you're interested in quick look at one woman's life in the fast lane of drugs and rock n roll.

Don't see it if you want to see a show of substance, not a copy of many others' similar problematic lives

Don't see it if Hour not sufficient entertainment value. Inconvenient venue. Superficial skim of relationship leaves viewers short changed.

Entertaining, Very interesting autobiography, The drug-fueled 1980s, Lucky she survived

See it if ... you enjoy personal stories. This is a real life Almost Famous, as told by Penny Lane. Script could be better. I'd want to hear more

Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Confusing, Slow

See it if You’d like to hear a personal story of excessive use of drugs, sex, rock & roll. One act/person play wt different characterization.

Don't see it if You do not like a lot of swearing, cursing, drug abuse, hear the story of underage girl touring wt a rock band, small theatre.

Also I hate to give a bad review, but this was probably the worst play I ev... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Edgy, Epic, Quirky, Interesting

Energetic, Intense, Amusing, Entertaining

See it if You like one-person, anecdotal, memoir-style theatre. A rebellious youth, lived on the wild side.

Cliched, Entertaining, Quirky, Clever, Funny

See it if you want a fun one hour romp through one woman's drug and sex fueled youthful years with only her rock star boyfriend for adult guidance.

Don't see it if you are looking for substance, more than anecdotes of her adventures, if you want intimate details of life on the road with the Dead.

Also Don't expect much of a view into the rock scene life. Since the play p... Read more Read less

Amusing, Fluffy

See it if you have more than a passing acquaintance with 80s drugs, sex and music, especially the Grateful Dead — you'll find a lot to relate to.

Don't see it if you've had your fill of memoir-type, solo-performer shows that are a little shy on content and stagecraft.

Also Some funny, freaky moments but the show won't rock your world. Felicit... Read more Read less

Fringe, Solo, Memoir, True story

See it if you like real-life solo storytelling, you grew up in the 80s, you want to reminisce about teen drug use & rock 'n roll living

Don't see it if you don't like small fringe theatre, no set, disappointing video/visual effects. Overall lacks emotional depth, played for shock value

Also Dynamo actress has great energy, and using only jackets & a hairband t... Read more Read less

Great writing, Ambitious, Indulgent, Clever

See it if you are okay with a one-woman show, where you are taken on a journey from growing up to her wild days with Weir and others.
