media response

"this is one sassy, pitch-perfect tale "

"beautifully framed staging from Hamberg"

"the emotional stakes remain grounded and true to life"

"Live Arts have pulled some serious magic out of their hat"

" 'And I am telling you' – see it before it closes"

"every member of this company loves what they’re doing, body, soul and especially heart, putting intense energy and talent out there for audiences to see—and on Friday, the audience rewarded them with a standing ovation."
