Really made me realize how good I have things in life. We live in a city where so many people are chasing a dream to become actors. Brittanie is using her God-given theatrical talents to help young girls in Kenya heal from a brutal life of sexual slavery. It's humbling; it's moving; it's a show that needs packed houses!... full review

Brittanie talks about the light, but i think it's just her. We get a piece of her enduring spirit in this storytelling style show with a few fun meetings with friends and relatives, and an engaging omniscient voice. Brittanie's journey is compelling and important to talk about. Her passion is absolutely inspiring! While it was so great to hear about her amazing non profit I felt that robbed the show a little theatrically in term of momentum - would Have been cool to see parts of the video throughout or maybe pieces foreshadowing who she'd become, but as is, it reads a little more PSA than theatre for those moments. That said, it's an important message and Brittanie shares it with grace and love in a way that is wonderful to watch. ... full review

This piece really brought out the joys, sorrows, frustrations, and wonders found in Africa and in the human experience. The global and personal obstacles that many of us face were presented in a way where you felt you were listening to your best-friend encouraging you with her own experience. I love that Brittanie also has an outlet to make a difference through the organization she has created. What a great, honest, and personal work of art.... full review

Art and Abolition is a great story of how one person can make a difference. It shows us how easy it is to say "yes" to following the tug on our heart strings in our lives. ... full review

Brittanie uses her obvious theatrical talent to deliver a story that is heartbreaking to its core, but also filled with light and hope. This show is a reminder that light always floods out darkness, and that each of us has a role to play. Your eyes will be opened to deep tragedy, but your heart will be uplifted by the work Brittanie does. This is a must-see show.... full review

This is such an important performance to see! It is a priceless call to action that if we all did at least one thing we could help end or at least alleviate the level of sex trafficking that goes on in this world. Brittanie is a hero and should receive a Nobel Peace prize for the work that she is doing and the risks that she takes!... full review
