Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if You like one act/person play, even though it is hard to pull it off, she did a good job switching between different characters.

Don't see it if You do not like small theaters, or one person show. Story was interesting but some parts were unnecessarily long, some characters outshine

Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You like 1 actor/many character plays and are ok with the storyline touching on sexual assault. Also pole dancing.

Don't see it if It's very impressively done - one woman playing 7 characters. It seems an important work. But I really didn't find it an enjoyable one.

Theatre is Easy
July 19th, 2018

“Under a lesser artist, the content...may come across as something best left for a therapist's office, but the quality and depth of Fernandez’ performance transcends this trap entirely. Her endearing openness and vulnerability makes it impossible to feel unmoved...Fernandez navigates the spectrum of the human condition skillfully...Although there are some structural and technical elements that could be tightened, ‘You Hold a Pole Every Day’ is a strong debut for a new playwright.”
