What I liked

I liked the honesty. Even when it was hard to watch, Laura tells it like it is, the good the bad and the very ugly, too. She’s opened her heart and showed her aggressors in all of their glory but she never wants your pity. She’s a very strong and smart woman who has been dealt tough cards to play with. Cathartic and unapologetic.

What I didn't like

It was either the A/C that was trying to cool down the theater, or the noise coming from the sidewalk but I had a hard time hearing what Laura said at times, especially when she sat near the front row. I missed the part when she introduced her alter egos GPS and G SPOT; it wasn’t until the 30 to 40 minute mark that I either heard or realized who’s who in the story. Also, the rushed delivery made it hard to follow. Either that or I needed to drown the noises around me to pay attention.

My overall impression

Laura takes the audience through an array of emotions through her childhood into adulthood as she encounters the wrong men along the way and has to rely in her inner voices, namely INNER GPS and G SPOT, who are not always the best advisers a woman can have.
