My overall impression

As a huge lover of old Hollywood, silent films and vintage everything… I absolutely adored this little show.

At the helm of it all is adorable Julisa trying to find her way as an old-fashioned gal in a much different Los Angeles than she had bargained for. Her guide of “tips” to get noticed is from an era long past. She visit hotspot locations in hopes of being seen but upon her arrival, finds out that the hippest place in town has turned into a popular retail chain. This outdated list leads her to find out how much Hollywood has changed from glitz to glib.

Julisa demonstrates her silent film background with great success. Her movements are exact, well formulated, choreographed and everything plays to the house very well. Her character voices are spot on and has great range slipping several raspy octaves below her chest voice and nails every dialect that she goes for.

There are some genuinely great laugh out loud moments and a lot of reasons to smile. The show ran a quick 30-35 minutes max so it should be a great addition in between shows. Go and have fun!
