Intense, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you would enjoy a very interesting and well thought out presentation by one woman bringing you insight from the big bang to today's chaos.

Don't see it if you are bothered by background music that overpowers the actor's voice - I missed some words of this excellent presentation and wish that

Also she had remained downstage more as that's where the speakers were!

Intelligent, Charming performer, Slow, Quirky, Relevant

See it if a pretty woman making surprising statements will keep your attention. A variation on a solo show imagining other lives she could have lived.

Don't see it if theater focused on current politics and religion disturbs you. Opinions are stated clearly then explored in short scenes.

Boring, Amateurish, Disorganized, Slow

See it if have high tolerance for a decent kernel of an idea that falls short in its execution.

Don't see it if you want a professionally-done production with well-defined characters and a clear plot line.

Also Many one-actor shows conjure up multiple characters that feel fleshed-... Read more Read less

Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if you appreciate mixing science with politics and laughing at Trump, his followers, and right wing ideas. Some of her remarks were poignant.,

Don't see it if you like Trump and dislike one-actor shows.
