Really incredible play, with an amazing performance by Ashley Ford as Victoria Woodhull! Theo Salter's writing is just perfect and he is someone to watch out for in this town. I haven't been to a one woman should in awhile, and this play got me right back into them!... full review

A beautiful choice in the wake of all the positive #CHANGES in storytelling in our artistic and public forums. Women are doing amazing things in the world, and always have been!

(Don't want to give a spoiler!) Kudos to the playwright for such a magnificent choice, and Ashley..well she looked just like the real picture! I was totally drawn in.... full review

The Terrible Legend of Victoria Woodhull is a captivating one woman show that was excellently written and directed. It was an inspiring piece of theater that reminds women of how far we have come in our struggle for women's rights and how far we still have to go. It was amazing how there were still so many parallels in the 1800's to today's political climate. Ashley moved effortlessly from character to character as she carried us on a journey of a woman who was rather unknown. Ashley's outstanding abilities as an actress combined with Theo's magnificent ability to craft stories in this manner is duo that I want to see again and again!!!... full review
