What I liked

everything. THANK YOU Reena for your incredible work, both inner and outer.

What I didn't like

hopefully this is positive, helpful feedback because I truly loved the show: make it slightly shorter. the power and impact will still be there. Sixty minutes would keep the story moving, whereas it got bogged down in a couple of instances. or else make it slightly longer and have an intermission….

My overall impression

Spectacularly riveting, brave, honest, important, universal… and masterfully performed. best payoff at the end that a theater piece can have – we, the audience, go through a transformation with Reena and come out a wiser person. that’s true catharsis. can’t say enough good things or recommend more highly.
