Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you like participatory presentations with high tech and energetic actors sharing their real-life experiences to bring about new perspectives

Don't see it if you are upset by a high tech show that doesn't always come through: hard-to-hear interpretations and audience voices in mic, lighting, etc.

"The lighthearted, thoughtful and souped-up multimedia performance piece...It’s a breezy 90-minute exploration of existence from a woman’s perspective with audience participation...Margineanu’s staging is an energetic affair of moving from segment to segment with flashiness...An engaging communal encounter session ranging from lightweight to deep. It’s sincerity in concert with the neat technological trappings enables it to succeed at depicting its subject matter."

"If it’s too uneven, abstruse, and ultimately too scattershot to work as a whole, 'The Female Role Model Project' is an intriguing experiment, with moments that are engaging, entertaining, and just plain cool...Out of the jumble that comprised 'The Female Role Model Project' – from the playful and informal to the high-tech lingo-laced mumbo jumbo to the half-hearted parody — it was these straightforward moments of candor that were the most effective."

“This show combines theatre and neuroscience for a one-of-a-kind interactive experience. Part performance, part game show, part story time, and part psychology/sociology lesson packed into two hours that won’t leave you bored...’The Female Role Model Project’s’ standout elements really lie in its concept...Not that the execution isn’t good...But the somewhat disjointed flow of the segments keeps the execution from being great."
