ELIZABETH COLLINS certified reviewer June 07, 2015
This show is amazing. Leigh tells a true and very personal story while combining it with fictional elements. Which added this incredible dimension to the emotions and themes of the story. AND a lot of humor. As a woman who is an artist of child-bearing age, the story struck home for me and I appreciate Leigh bringing this story to the stage. Saying that, I sat next to a young man in his 20s, who LOVED the show too! Leigh is a wonderful writer and fun to watch as she seamlessly slides into three different characters during this 90 min show that did not feel that long. ... full review

I was so deeply moved by Leigh Curran's strength, fragility, and content, and ability to connect completely with the audience. I laughed, uproariously, and tears ran down my cheeks. When it was all over I didn't want to get up, I wanted to cry my heart out!!! Deeply moving, it touched so many places in the psyche and heart. Thank you for sharing so completely, while being completely entertaining rather than self-indulgent. Brava for the acting, writing, and directing!... full review

Wonderful play! I took my two children, ages 12 and 15, and was a little unsure if the material would keep them entertained for the 90 minute show. They were wide-eyed throughout the entire performance, as was I! Leigh has done a fabulous job with writing and acting in this very moving performance. It left me wanting to know more about her life. I didn’t want it to end and when it did, it was hard to hold back the tears. Just beautiful!... full review

This was a powerful performance that took me on an unexpected journey. There were moments of laugh out loud humor and uncomfortable moments of hurt and sadness. I was truly moved by Leigh's performance. Her initial introduction of the characters was perfect and she flowed between them effortlessly. I'd definitely recommend seeing this heartfelt and emotional work!... full review

The depth, honesty and acting of Why Water Falls touched me deeply. Leigh's willingness to explore and so transparently share her life's journey on the way to healing is masterful and meaningful for those of us who recognize that the basic challenges and injuries of life can be shared in a way that brings us each closer to ourselves.... full review
