My overall impression

I’m stone cold and I was weeping at the end of this piece. Yokko is an amazing performer and she makes herself completely available to the audience through her characterizations, physicality, and storytelling ability. So much is happening on stage that you forget that this is a one-woman show (I’m looking at you one-woman show haters). I particularly enjoyed how she created a cast of characters to represent her inner dialogues as she tried to reconcile her relationship with her father with her personal goals/demons and her battle with a mysterious illness. As and audience member, at the end of the piece I felt as if I have been taken on a journey and made discoveries along the way. As a performer, I felt as if I have learned a lot about craft and how to present the authentic self on stage. I loved it. Go see it. Let me say that again- go see it.
