What I liked

This show is super relatable – especially in its more grounded and serious moments. We all have those inner voices in our heads that criticize and make us doubt ourselves. This show has a lot of heart in addition to being a joy to watch. Wilson moves from absurdism to realism seamlessly and it is the juxtaposition between comedy and heartfelt drama that makes this show so compelling.

What I didn't like

Personally, I didn’t feel anything needed improvement. This show starts and ends with a bang and there were no obvious bumps or elements that took away from the performance.

My overall impression

Powerhouse Maria Margaret Wilson delivers a laugh-out-loud performance that simultaneously tickles and tugs at our heart strings. With interactive elements and hilarious visual effects, Me, Myself, and Why (Am I here) directed by the fantastic Caroline Sweet, exposes the secret insecurities that we all try to hide from the world in a way that is poignant and downright funny.
