Review by JESSICA JILL TURNER

What I liked

Everything. But I especially loved the Anxiety/Depression song.
The whole cast was great. The performances were top notch.

What I didn't like

N/A

My overall impression

This show is profound, tender and brilliantly funny. It gives voice and song to a swath of mental illnesses through irresistible characters, all under the “care” of the bent but well-meaning Trixie, and it does so with sparkling humor and deep pathos. Insights are offered, but are rendered with enough subtlety and complexity, that I have been thinking about this show since I saw it three days ago. I want to see it again, I want to think about it more. I suspect Emily Decker is on to something that is a rare and amazing thing, a show that is not only absorbingly entertaining, but unexpectedly healing as well.
