What I liked

Crystal Bush is as mesmerizing as the drugs she personifies in the piece. An entertaining education that I am happy to have only witnessed and not experienced first hand. Crystal is a powerful and polished actress whose characterization are as good as they get. I think I just saw Best Solo Show of HFF19!

What I didn't like

There were a couple technical hiccups which only reinforced her skills as a performer, she was undaunted and kept the show going at an impressive and undeterred pace.

My overall impression

What a powerful tour de force into the landscape of crumbling self esteem and destructive vices. Crystal Bush brings in a powerful performance with equal measures hilarity and horror as we witness her struggle with ways to suppress issues of abandonment and self love.
