My overall impression

We go to the theatre to be told great stories, to be taken on a journey, and to see magic happen right before our eyes. Kyla Garcia blows the audience away with her ability to fulfill not only those desires, but takes you on a ride (or flight) you’ll be thinking about for days. What good art should do. Her writing is truthful, from the heart, poetic, with the ability to make you feel like it was written just for you. And her performance of the material is even more awe-inspiring. Watching this show you deeply feel for the central character’s conflict as well as celebrate her discoveries. But what I most took away from this show was gratitude, because once you witness this woman tackle the amazing feat of powerful writing, vibrant movement, dozens of colorful characters, and raw and honest performance, you will want to go rule a country and celebrate the fact that you’re living. And for that I am eternally grateful.
Brava! A must see show!!
