In 1997, 13-year-old Victoria Montalbano was introduced to her perfect man, Han Solo, and she’s been looking for him ever since. Watch her grow from awkward theatre kid to professional out of work actress while swiping her way through a galaxy far, far away!

★★★★★ “…a consistently entertaining hour full of vivid description and emotional empathy…Her delivery is warm and real. And you don’t have to be a single woman to fall under her spell — her story has universal appeal for anyone whose life hasn’t gone according to plan, who has suffered the pangs of first love, who has struggled to find inner peace with choices made.” – Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel


“…a powerhouse performance that touches the heart, while also inspiring such intense laughter that it will make your eyes tear.” – Rikki Lee Travolta, Life and Times


“Her tightly-paced monologue interweaves her adoration for George Lucas’ space-opera saga with navigating the asteroid belt of unrequited love, from teenage crushes to her struggles as a heartbroken, ramen-broke performer in Chicago’s improv comedy scene…the Force is strong with this fresh, funny celebration of fangirldom.” – Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly
