Its always nice to have video segments and I appreciated them greatly. A smart choice for a live theatre event to remind us that we are truly in a film town. Great job with this as it provided a secondary level to work off of as the audience and allowed for the live performance to recharge a bit before spilling more grounded truth about her life and how she absolutely rose upward and outwards from it.
What I didn't like
Nothing. No reason to find a thing wrong with something that already thrives and with perfect pacing and tone.
My overall impression
When you are asked by a friend to see a one person show – you do everything you can to see it – that person has condensed their life for you and its a time to have a pure – bare bones experience with them in a structured level thats entirely on their own terms. A Year In Dragonfly is an elevated experience that descends from a staircase with a bang and rises to heal with hope and with bold clarity. It is rough only when it needs to be and thus stronger this way in its impact. I appreciate the hands on speed of its pace and flow with the time allowance. Austin Musick truly manages something special here and its lives perfectly in the space.
