This is the second time I've seen the show, first time in its expanded version. It's very smart, funny, infuriating, sad, happy all at the same time! It's a triumph of taking responsibilities for the choices one makes in life, even before one knows they WERE choices! Laura does a masterful job of playing so many characters from her own life's story. She doesn't defend her choices but shines a light on how to deal with them, even when some of them were perpetrated by others. ... full review

A true ride! Heartfelt, raw, told with so much honesty and fun too. Laura is a great storyteller and a force of nature. Her story allows us in a real warrior combat of a woman. We feel so happy seeing Laura so fresh and strong and alive after all she went through and at the same time, sadly, very relatable to many. Thank you for sharing your story and congratulations again!!! ... full review

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 relati... full review

Through brilliant character portrayal, great storytelling and wonderful writing Laura takes us on a personal journey of how she learned to listen to her own GPS. This show is life changing. There's not a lot of Fringe shows that can claim that!... full review
KELLY MULLIS certified reviewer June 18, 2018
This show was amazingly honest, raw, & heartbreaking but never for a moment did Laura Grimaldi come across like a victim. In fact she has the most incredible strength! This woman has been thru so much in her short life but if has only enhanced her convictions. She now knows that she doesn’t need a man to be happy. She can live life on her own terms and enjoy her children and pursue her dreams! ... full review
CAILIN HARRISON certified reviewer June 17, 2018
Laura Grimaldi's one woman show is totally organic. It bravely exposes uncomfortable tales from her life with heart and humor. It is an amazingly balanced story of self reflection that could so easily have slipped into a self absorbed sob story. Go to see this uplifting, entertaining show. You will not be disappointed. ... full review
