What I liked

I thought that every word she uttered came straight from the heart – very honest performance.

What I didn't like

Nothing that I can think of – even when she lost her place, it felt authentic – in a funny way, it made her story all the more real

My overall impression

A courageous, heart-wrenching tour de force. Be sure to put on your seat belt because Left Turns will take you on an incredibly emotional rollercoaster of a journey. It will make you laugh and cry; empathize and sympathize; wonder and ponder.
Grimaldi revisits every painful memory with heartbreaking honesty and a vulnerability that imprisons the audience so that her journey becomes its journey. But even more remarkable is the humility and reverence with which she embraces the triumphs. As an audience, her triumphs become our triumphs; her hope and optimism become ours. We cheer her on because we recognize ourselves in her journey, and we’re inspired by her grit and her courage.
This is a show that every adult who has ever had a relationship or has ever thought of having a relationship should see.
