My overall impression

(The hard part of this review will be to not reveal anything from the show itself as it NEEDS to be seen.)

This was a fantastic performance with a nail-biting story told by the quirky, instantly-likable one woman show, Abby Schachner. Within the first 20 seconds she had me hook, line and sinker for the story is one of those “ripped from the headlines” kinda story, but whoa: nothing like you would EVER expect! Abby owned her performance the second she began but because of her extremely humble nature she will be the first one to deny it. She displayed conviction in every part of her show. The comedic elements were naturally funny stories told with an earnestness and “flashback” scenes certainly put the viewer back in the time frame, adding an almost voyeuristic sense. I really can’t say enough good things about it. JUST GO SEE IT!!!!
