BILL BERRY certified reviewer June 09, 2018
Bravo! The show is an arresting portrayal of a woman on the brink, with the clash of good and evil memories playing a tug-of-war with her psyche. A deeply personal study of a person trying to break free of her past. Ms. Smith was as fragile as a dried leaf but held fast throughout. I cared so much for her. The villains of the show were brutal and fierce. The angels were funny, caring, real, and reminded me of people in my own life. Room No. 9 at the Chrysalis Inn serves up tragedy and hope in equal helpings. ... full review

Butterfly, through performance, voice over and video, takes us on a short journey of a woman who wakes up to her grandmothers' voices in a room, which is actually her subconscious. She deals with her past, her fear, her anger and ultimately conquers them. ... full review

I loved this show! The concept, the staging, the execution -- to be specific, Butterfly's live performance (and her intriguing live host/narrator), and the video and recorded presences as well. Without spoiling the show, suffice it to say there is good reason for them not to be performed live. This show deals with grief, anger -- dark emotions -- in a way that is honest and uplifting, not pat or out of a Hallmark card. See it for its value as theater, and be rewarded with perspective on life.... full review

The main character was very engaging. You could feel her pain. Your heart goes out to her for the injustices she was subjected to in her life.... full review
