What I liked

Bonnie’s creativity, energy and singing! What a voice!

What I didn't like

The recording at the beginning was hard to understand and hear and I didn’t’ realize it was a part of the show until it was almost over.

My overall impression

An absolutely creative, fun, energetic and charming show! It reminded me that I used to watch Miss Frizzle and the Magic Bus and and was just as entertaining, fun and educational. Yes, as an adult. I loved it.
Bonnie engages the audience with witty dialogue and a compelling story of having survived sexual violence that’s enjoyable, potent, raw and honest. Her story and the continuing healing process that she allows herself shows her strength, openness and heart. Recognizing the effect trauma on the body, the story lets the body tell how pain can get stored and the need for release.
