Review by GABRIELLE ARCHAMBAULT

What I liked

Great body work on the physicality of the different characters. I could see a deep connection in the performance particularly in Polly’s connection with the birds and her love of music. Great balance of comedy and drama in the piece.

What I didn't like

I would love to see this show be granted a space to use more set design to truly flesh out the space and help guide the viewer through scene changes.

My overall impression

A fun exploration of modern dating with incredible vocal acrobatics performed by Alena Bernardi. Get ready for melismas galore. For music lovers you will get some good laughs from classical music references and musical comedy. An enjoyable variety of characters are portrayed by Alena and she shows the true gambit of her vocal stylings and techniques through the 75 minute performance.
