From the show:

Multi-award winning writer and storyteller Casey Jay Andrews brings her five star sell-out hit “The Archive of Educated Hearts” to New York.

How do you chart the remarkable moments that make up a lifetime? Scrawled diary entries, answerphone messages blinking on an old landline, a shoebox of postcards and cassette tapes winding yarns across years and continents.

Absorbing, Heartfelt, Personal, Modest

See it if u want to see a multimedia tribute to four breast cancer victims & hear their stories of reflection, empathy & strength in their own words.

Don't see it if ur uncomfortable with the subject (breast cancer); u expect more of a conventional theater piece than a spoken word performance art piece.

Also The subject matter is serious & heartbreaking, and the journey is a ve... Read more Read less

Philosophical, Intense, Thought-provoking, Half-hour run time, Multi-media

See it if for the deep self reflection brought on by facing serious illness.

Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional theatrical experience.

Profound, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Touching

See it if you want to grow emotionally and spiritually from the perspective of breast cancer patients who do not accept notion of themselves as victim

Don't see it if you don’t appreciate one woman narrative and voice recordings of women sharing a life crisis with recitations by male reader of book re EI.

Also This show would be more powerful if produced and edited by a professio... Read more Read less

A good conversation starter on any human topic that somehow connect to life, love, and death, Felt intimate, confessional and soul baring, No number score on this one, A number score seems inappropriate for this kind of show

See it if you find yourself in a contemplative mood & want to hear an artist's intimate thoughts & reflections on 4 special women in her family circle

Don't see it if you're not the kind of person who likes to reflect on family, relationships, life, illness and our finite time on this planet.

Also This was a very intimate if too brief reflection that focused on Casey... Read more Read less
