What I liked

The content and mysterious tone.

What I didn't like

I thought the simple rendition was nice for Fringe. I personally would love to see the show become more elaborate, with more settings, and possibly more characters (an ensemble rather than a one-person show). But that’s just because I like the story so much!

My overall impression

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! Victoria Woodhull is a spectacular example of this, and her story deserves to be told, and audiences were treated to a personalized journey set within a context of one of Victoria’s many skills! (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.
