What I liked

I love love love performers who can skillfully improvise off of their audience. Always prepared for a latecomer, a disheveled stage curtain or a pesky prop, Deana Barone proves to be this type of performer. She is masterful at portraying different members of her family, each with their own quirks, innocence, and degrees of belief within the Jewish faith. But the true goods of this show are how we are called as an audience to become one singular unit of solidarity and support for the struggling family members who so need a kind voice on their side. Deana gives and gives all from a bottomless reserve of cosmic energy and out-of-this-world talent.

What I didn't like

Let’s see more of her on screens.

My overall impression

This is why she is my director and developer of choice, for my own solo show, “Mom? Dad? I Have ADHD (and other ways to let down The Indian Family).”
