It felt like we were really in Rachel’s shoes and born into a whole different family history. It was so much fun to laugh WITH her during her stories. This show starts with a bang and the pacing is great. She really is comfortable with the audience and does not have that weird deer-in-headlights feeling I usually see in solo work. It really feels like we are all just chilling over a beer and sharing a story but then all of a sudden she is 10 and we’re in her childhood home and then she takes us deeper with a flip of a song, slide or light cue and we are right there being looked at by her mother, brother or seeing her moment of truth she’d been waiting for her entire childhood (which flooded me with memories of my own story and reminded me of some great things to think about more often)… I won’t spoil it. A Fringe Gem.
