Terra is a delight. She had the audience in the palm of her hand from the first minute. Terra is so charming and charismatic an actor, she brought Shakespeare to life in a highly relatable way. You don't have to like Shakespeare or even have read Willy to enjoy this piece. ... full review

I'm fairly knowledgeable about Shakespeare but thanks to this show I feel like the real deal- Terra's passion for the Bard is serious and so is her command of the stage. Loved hearing this story. She brings Elizabethan history to life and draws upon some funny and sad life moments that further cement her connection to good ol Will Shakes! I'd love to have learned a little more about Terra's own life experiences in this show, even if we had to lose some of the plentiful history of the Bard, however hysterically presented. The stories she tells are compelling and well written. ... full review

Absolutely wonderful! Terra is captivating and passionate and her love of Shakespeare and presence as a performer pulled me in from the moment she came on stage until the lights went out. An enriching, educational, and heartfelt experience! LOVED IT! ... full review

Terra's show was completely entertaining and educational. I guess you could call it edutaining. She is ever so smart, educated, talented and I experienced every range of emotions from laughing out loud at her hilarious humor and pithy puns to crying as she shared so vulnerably about the depression she experienced in college. I am so grateful that Terra found her voice in the theater because hers is a voice worth hearing! I have seen scores of solo shows and this one BY FAR is one of my absolute favorites!... full review

I loved Willy's Lil Virgin Queen. It's a fun, educational, and heartfelt romp through the brilliant works of Shakespeare. Terra is masterful at engaging with the audience and bringing us into her journey - weaving the words of Shakespeare into the most impactful moments of her life. She's so likable and engaging, it's hard not to enjoy this show! I highly recommend seeing this show! It's great! ... full review

Fantastic show. Terra has a phenomenal stage presence and draws you into her love of Shakespeare - weaving profound moments of her life together with the great playwright. She also goes through the story of every single King and Queen of England - the best history lesson I ever had! Highly entertaining, funny and also deeply moving, this show is not to be missed!... full review

BROOKE BAUMER certified reviewer June 06, 2017
Fantastic show. Terra takes what can be interpreted as an intimidating topic (understanding the Bard) and just brings it to life in the most magical way. She perfectly weaves in moments from her own life and how the words of Shakespeare perfectly coincided. Her energy and stamina is awe-inspiring. Without giving anything away, her rendition of Hamlet's infamous "to be or not to be speech" will bring tears to your eyes. A truly wonderful show at Fringe not to miss.... full review

tagged as: Fun!
Wow! I was intimidated at first going to see this show because I'm not well versed in Shakespeare (which is lame for a writer) but I just never had patience with it. Terra has changed my mind. Her love affair with Willy made me a little jealous, in a good way! Terra is truly captivating on stage, she is witty, beautiful and hilarious. This show is so much fun and a must-see for all! ... full review
