My overall impression

I have never seen a one person show like this one by Abby Schachner. It was a deeply emotionally experience and a nonstop assault on the senses. Her mind-blowing story was unleashed with incredible raw intensity and balanced by a playful intelligence and crazy sense of humor.

The surreal story she reveals about her parents is performed with surprising precision and powerful energy that is both hysterical and touching. Schachner is an amazing performer, a tornado of weird brilliance and a new important voice to be reckoned with. This show should be expanded and produced off-broadway. It’s really that original, shocking and profound.

Easily the best one person show I have seen in years.
