it was a worthy effort, and the inclusion of her musically gifted son Derrick (who played flute, clarinet and sax) helped set the mood for the show with his beautiful compositions.... full review

A heartwarming and emotional, yet very funny tale of divorce and overcoming hopelessness by taking a risk. That risk panned out into something truly incredible and inspiring - and entirely relevant. Well worth watching!... full review

Wow! What a story!! It's not everyday that someone writes a book behind bars with the help of a total stranger without ever meeting in person!!! Stacy tells us her story, this fascinating success story, with so much depth. The show is accompanied by music through her (Genius) Son Derrick who plays several instruments, flute, sax... The live music supports Stacy's words, sometimes spoken words, beautifully! It is also very funny, Stacy is hilarious, and lovable! I loved her and her story and her son! Congratulations!... full review

Everyone has a story to tell and Fringe is where the ambitious come to capture an audience. Stacy Dymalski captured Producer Michael Blaha, who also brought us two Edinburgh Fest successes this season, and she uses her hour to showcase the musical talents of her son Derrick, too.

Maybe after he finishes his punitive sentence we'll be seeing HIM here at Fringe was well! I'll bet THAT story will still be Trendy then! (Like Michael Blaha's ECHOES, which ought to be called CAPTURED!, this show ne... full review

I love Stacy!!! She offers a very touching and heart-warming perspective to realities of single-parenting, desperation and divorce that you might guess have already been over-stated and “used-up”! You would be all wrong. We are always interested in the transformation of our fears into potential growth and goodness. Stacy takes us from the universal truths of fear and pain and transforms us all into humans, right on the spot, which is always more tender and sweet than we could have planned for or imagined. BRAVA!!!❤️❤️ ... full review
