ABBY SCHACHNER uncertified reviewer June 18, 2016
Cathy is a top-notch performer and really likable person who got swept up in Scientology. i'm glad she's out, and I'm glad she's telling her story. With the help of great direction by Shirley Anderson, Cathy's show is tight, RICH, and I have a feeling this could be a two or three parter!... full review

Watching this show, I was reminded of the stories of young girls wandering into fairy rings and being offered some tasty food. The young girls innocently accepts the gift and eats the meal, only to discover that the food was rotten, the fairies were maliciously deceptive and the meal stole decades of time from her. ... full review

Put this at the top of best performed, brilliant written, and elegantly directed one person shows I have ever seen. And so important too. Kudos to Cathy Schenkelberg, Shirley Anderson, and everyone else involved with this production. These are courageous artists creating significant art, molding harsh experience into a tender,funny, and enlightening experience. Squeeze My Cans is a buffer between you and the temptation to surrender to the meme of cult mentality. ... full review

JANE MORRIS uncertified reviewer June 26, 2016
So looking forward to when this show returns to Los Angeles. Funny, informative, cautionary. An excellent piece of work from a stellar writer/performer. Hats off to Cathy and director, Shirley Anderson, for a whirlwind trip through the cult of Scientology and what happens when such a group takes your mind by the throat.... full review
