What I liked

Sam Shaber pulls you into her life with stories that run the gambit from pre-teen Sam, to present day. You meet important people in her life and the effect they’ve all had on her. After each story she shares, she plays a song (live and with a guitar) that was written about who she just spoke about. You will laugh at times, you will want to cry at times. If you’ve ever dealt with a death of a close personal friend or loved one, you will understand this show and appreciate it that much more.

It’s the positive outlook she has that makes everything “ok”. This show will make you realize a lot of things about your life and yourself. It will make you see that life is beautiful and to live it and love it, as well as loving yourself and your friends and family. It will also show you that life is unfair, cruel, and horrible at times, but you can overcome that. We all can.

What I didn't like

Nothing, this was perfection

My overall impression

I first got intrigued by this show from the “Duran Duran” reference. I love New Wave and went in expecting stories about adolescent youth and the fanaticism of a certain band. While there are elements of that in this show, this is much, much more.
