A rare and highly entertaining peek into a bizarre world through the eyes of a beautiful, likable, funny kind soul. I would recommend it to friends and encourage anyone who's curious about Scientology to go! ... full review

This was an incisive look into the world of Scientology from one person's perspective. Having also made that similar journey, her presentation rang with devastating truth. Yet she made it clear enough for non-Scientologists to understand, Her experience from many aspects serves as a warning to anyone who is tempted to become involved. ... full review

Cathy Schenkelberg gives a powerful, constantly surprising performance in this emotional and very funny one-woman show. As she portrays her experience trapped in the Church of Scientology, she becomes a wide range of characters, from her auditors, to her own father, to her Scientology peers, to a young, naive version of herself. Her intensity mounts as we watch her rising monetary debt, projected on the back wall, and feel her pain and confusion as she learns about Martians in volcanoes and crawling on her skin. I would totally recommend this show to anyone - the performance is as stunning as the story is devastating.... full review

This is the best stage expose of a normal (but very talented) person being taken in and lied to by $cientology that I've ever seen. ... full review

Put this at the top of best performed, brilliant written, and elegantly directed one person shows I have ever seen. And so important too. Kudos to Cathy Schenkelberg, Shirley Anderson, and everyone else involved with this production. These are courageous artists creating significant art, molding harsh experience into a tender,funny, and enlightening experience. Squeeze My Cans is a buffer between you and the temptation to surrender to the meme of cult mentality. ... full review

I've been interested in this subject for a while, and in the people who have gotten involved and also gotten out, so this play was right up my alley and I was really excited to see it and I was definitely not disappointed. I loved the performance. What a really beautiful and talented woman, a good story teller and also included some song and dance - definitely a talented artist. I did find it a little sad, even teared up when she was telling about saying goodbye to her dad, but overall I found the message hopeful. And as some other reviewers have mentioned, I'd highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in joining this cult or any other, but specifically Scientology. I'd definitely see this one again and just might if it fits in... full review

Watching this show, I was reminded of the stories of young girls wandering into fairy rings and being offered some tasty food. The young girls innocently accepts the gift and eats the meal, only to discover that the food was rotten, the fairies were maliciously deceptive and the meal stole decades of time from her. ... full review
