Absorbing, Ambitious, Funny, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if to explore remedial education against overwhelming odds faced by the poor and marginalized; if the occasional success story inspires you.

Don't see it if you're too suspicious of a white woman's take on problems of people of color and of recent immigrants...oh, see it anyway.

See it if you enjoy shows about life journeys or just want to learn something about a continuing issue in education

Theatre is Easy
August 16th, 2016

"The 'moral' seems to be that it's the students who are the ones who really make a difference in the teacher’s life. But, as with so many clichés, there is truth to this: teaching and helping others can be rewarding. What’s harder to swallow is that Levy is doing a show about how she has found her true calling in teaching and no longer needs to act, a truth she communicates by, well, acting. Then again, perhaps Levy has found a way to have her cake and eat it too."

DC Metro Theater Arts
August 19th, 2016

"Levy’s delivery is slow and deliberate, as she manifests her disappointments and frustrations, then begins to recognize her newfound skill...An engaging and illuminating self-portrait about finding one’s true calling in the most unexpected of places. It also represents a happy fulfillment of Levy’s dream of becoming a successful actress–as well as a playwright, and an affecting teacher. That’s a win/win/win—not just for her, but for her students and audiences as well."
