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.

Thought-provoking, Edgy, Great performance, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if layeredly complex humor appeals to you. This mix of ritual, drag, multigenerational, cross cultural Latinx, solo performance astonishes.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy thinking while you laugh. So much goes on within this hour it requires willing mental cooperation of its viewers.

Great staging, Intense, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to spend a fun time with a well-acted&well- directed solo play on legacy across generations&cultures.

Don't see it if you expect the play in Portuguese. At times Arturo's memories& description of his mother outweigh the scenes in which he portrays himself. Read more

Great acting, Resonant, Quirky, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if Actor gives a flamboyant performance of his dominating mother. No holds barred and showy acting; potentially interesting subject.

Don't see it if Needed to be longer and less superficial. Main themes were not explored in an involving, meaningful way.

"What marks this play as extraordinary...is its ease with emotional contradiction and discomfort, its willingness to let filial affection persist despite a cleareyed acknowledgment of parental damage done."

"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."

New York Theater

'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."
