Thought-provoking, Great singing, Great acting

See it if Entertaining and thought-provoking. Well acted and written.

Don't see it if wish I knew beforehand that the actor was playing his own mother. Made it all even more relevant but only found that out later.

"This one- person show is over-the-top, entertaining, and enlightening telling of a free-spirit who lived her life exactly as she wanted to and of how she inspired her children to also live their lives to the fullest."

'The hour-long monologue is more complex than just a comic portrait, although it’s certainly funny. It’s threaded through with subtly poignant stories illustrating issues of race, class, nationality and gender. It’s also something of an autobiography, the story of a queer boy’s coming of age, seen through the eyes of his mother, who is not always sympathetic."

"There is a fine line in solo theater between entertainment and self-indulgence, and Gambini allows Soria to samba right up to that line without crossing over."
