My overall impression

The Maya in Me was a riveting show that opened the doors to the life and experiences of Tameka Bob! Tameka is an A-1 storyteller. This one woman show was well written and without a doubt a master performance. She took me to the streets of New Orleans as she relentlessly searched for “G”. She took me back to the 90’s when she spit self-written bars to the tune of some of my favorite old school hip hop songs. She kept me on my toes surprising me with twist and turns as led me through her tale of hurt and disappointment on her journey to become a doctor. She lifted my spirits with dance and poetry with the lending hand of the great Maya Angelou. And she kept me amused and chuckling as she re-enacted scenes with multiple characters. This play was a wonderful piece that allowed me to walk away with a piece of Tameka’s heart and soul in my pocket. Everyone should go see it. . . she gives it her all!
