What I liked

I thought it was really well acted. With Virginia and various other characters appearing. It was a lot of fun, and its politics were never heavy handed

What I didn't like

The theater needs better air-conditioning. They were making a virtual reality film of the show the night I went and the camera was obtrusive

My overall impression

Really well acted. This one person show draws you into the fascinating story of Virginia Woodhull, who I certainly had never heard of, but was an early feminist and free love advocate who was clearly well known at the time, and ran for president in 1872. The show is lively and funny and informative, and relevant to today.
