I attended the Sunday 6/18/17 5:30pm performance. I thought it was phenomenal, extremely funny and was entertained the entire time as was my friend who I invited to the show. Lesley definitely earned and deserved the standing ovation that she received! I hope she submits for and is selected for next year's Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival because more people need to see her show!... full review

Intense, thought provoking, authentic portrayal of what it means to live the American Dream. Great sociological perspective on what America has meant to so many people. Lesley's performance was kind and warm hearted in the stark reality, truth and foreshadows of American culture today. A must watch for artists and voices everywhere! ... full review
