Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Quirky

See it if A woman’s fascinating world view will hold your attention. Thiswell written monologue is being preformed by different actress/director pairs

Don't see it if you’re devoted to the Protestant work ethic, you will resent the monlogist’s lifestyle. Naturally disliking one woman shows is a problem too

Incisive, Beautifully played, Resonant, Intense, Raw

See it if you are unafraid to enter into a raw, gripping encounter in an intimate space with a total stranger who has a story to tell you.

Well-acted, Entertaining, Intimate, Same script, but different actor & director each week, Good story & concept

See it if ... you like solo shows in small spaces. (It's a store-front art gallery.) Well-written Karen Eilbacher (4/24-25 only) was excellent. 1 hr.

Don't see it if ... you're not interested in hearing personal stories about a couch-surfer

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you're up for an absorbing solo show about a young woman couch-surfing her way through life. Insightful & intimate. Courtney Shaw's amazing.

Don't see it if you don't like solo shows and don't like dramas (this goes to some dark places, despite having a fair amount of rueful humor).

Great acting, Absorbing, Clever

See it if Sadly it's closed but this show was wonderful. Beautiful intimate space and excellent story. I was fortunate to see Jessica Pimental!

Don't see it if If it comes back and you are not a fan of one person shows, this is probably not for you.

Banal, Pointless, Quirky, Cliched

See it if you have an hour of your life to kill, you enjoy Leslye Headland's interesting point of view in her work, acting is good but sterotypical

Don't see it if you like Leslye Headland's work (it will disappoint), you want to see something profound, you'd rather see more deep work about women
