What I liked

Cathy manages to tell a pretty dark and terrifying story about her spiral down the wormhole that is Scientology without getting maudlin or wallowing in it. We, the audience, even laughed out loud plenty. having said that, she doesn’t shy away from telling us some of the very personal, painful steps down the path and then back.

What I didn't like

There were times that I thought the show was paced too fast, I was hanging on to keep up and then I realized, duh, oh course we should feel like we are on a roller coaster. The story she is telling was a speeding train and she couldn’t get off.

My overall impression

It’s a powerful tour-de-force!
