What I liked

The story line was compelling. The story itself was expressed in a heartfelt manner with a humorous mix very appropriately timed. Her facial expressions often communicated her feelings without the words, those moments were gifted and seemed to really connect with me.

What I didn't like

At times was challenging to determine who was talking, perhaps a gesture or some other signal would provide clarify. Saying that however, does not diminish at all from the brilliant writing that allowed great insight to the characters, especially Anna.

My overall impression

I was impressed with the strength of writing, the ability to deliver those written words with strength and passion, and the facial expressions, tones of voice, and humor that seemed to blend in a very special way that connected the characters to the actress and her audience.

Her voice was strong and easily heard. Her passion for the characters was apparent and charming. My wife enjoyed the performance and we will encourage others to see family dynamics expressed in a passionate and positive manner.
