What I liked

Wow. Just wow. The mother-daughter relationship can be complex and difficult to process, but Jennie Fahn turned her process into art. In this fast-moving, remarkable piece, Fahn plays multiple roles – primarily herself and her mother – taking the audience on a retrospective that perfectly captures each era from the ’50s through today, and places the players in context within those eras.

What I didn't like

The few projected images didn’t add much. The show doesn’t really need them, but if they’re in, they should contribute more.

My overall impression

Brilliantly acted and directed, passionate and moving. Will make you look at your own mother from an entirely new perspective.
