What I liked

I loved the use of music and the artistic style of the piece. The music selection was very well thought out and really helped to create the atmosphere of the piece; and their choreographed moments we’re a nice compliment to the text. One particular moment that stands out is when they both fall at the same time while discussing dealing with failure. Overall there was a lot to like about this play.

What I didn't like

Not much. If anything, it would be that most of the choreography was perfectly timed that the few times it wasn’t it stuck out. For example, there was a moment where they clapped along to the song and momentarily clapped out of sync. Otherwise, it was a lovely show and I would have liked to see it taken even further.

My overall impression

Maddie, Porsche, and Megan did a beautiful job of creating and bringing life to this charming piece about what it means to be an artist and what it means to be a woman. They had me laughing, crying, and sitting on the edge of my seat in wonder. I would absolutely recommend this to all Fringe participants, and I would recommend to myself to see it again! I only wish there was more to it.
