What I liked

It was such a delight to watch Shelley’s skillful performance, how she transformed so effortlessly from one character to another, gracefully guiding us deeper into the story. One moment an old lady, the next a buoyant agile creature. One moment there with us in the theater, the next laying on the floor of a Nazi army uniform factory fighting for her life and the lives of others. As the characters longed for the next message from the angels, so did we. Thank you Shelley for having the courage to bring forth such an unusual story.

What I didn't like

Would be great to see her shows extended!

My overall impression

Shelley Mitchell has done some incredible heavy lifting to bring such a compelling story to life on the stage. She took me back in time and reminded me of the dignity of what it means to be human.
