WADE SKALSKY certified reviewer June 12, 2015
My wife and I absolutely loved the show. Elizabeth Collins deftly navigates the turns in her life with with wit and charm. Her delivery demands the audiences attention and she knows what to do with it. The laughs are aplenty and the end of the story is a sweet, emotional payoff. We cannot recommend this show highly enough!... full review

EMILY AND ELIZABETH HINKLER certified reviewer June 14, 2015
Elizabeth is awesome. Her storytelling is so beautifully done, the audience feels as though one of her dear friends. We were blown away by her humanity and grew along with her in the journey we took along with her. What an experience to be had that is often hidden from "glamorous" shows these days- the compelling feeling of simplicity of storytelling is where it's at! Lovely visuals that added such a personal touch. Go see Elizabeth to see what growing up is all about.... full review

i loved this story. it was a humbly told show, no bells and whistles, but elizabeth is adorable and funny and very unsuspecting. she expresses this story, a very interesting and colorful one at that, in such a clear way... we love her and feel for her and her father and even her dad's 'pal', dale. But most of all we love elizabeth, cuz even though she looks so deceptively normal, underneath, there's flair (as evidenced by the humor), and why wouldn't there be? after all, she's her father's daughter. And what a lovely relationship it is!... full review
MARIA PASQUARELLI certified reviewer June 15, 2015
Elizabeth is wonderfully honest and has a subtle, genuine sense of humor that can catch you off guard at times throughout her play. The simple staging allows her to just talk to the audience and tell her story without any pretense. I know there aren't many shows left, so go if you still can! ... full review
MICHAEL LOPEZ certified reviewer June 16, 2015
Elizabeth is a testament to the power inherent in a well told story. Simply put, with off-beat charm and a deceptively cagey comedic bent. Her seeming innocence belies a keen eye for catching the perfectly telling detail that makes you laugh at the truth of it. ... full review
WILLIAM RIEDMANN certified reviewer June 27, 2015
I really enjoyed this show and I was amazed at how Elizabeth got up there and made it seem so casual and easy- she was just telling us a story. And a moving and touching one I won't forget about acceptance and love.... full review
