What I liked

Strong and precise character work. Even the characters in her head that could be grating for some to do were perfectly suited to her show. She’s shares herself so readily that you feel like you’ve known her a lifetime. A lovely performer.

What I didn't like

Every small thing that was amiss will be polished by the next performance.

My overall impression

Lara Repko finds tremendous positivity and humor in this fantastic show about how she got herself into and out of a terrible situation. Her ability to keep it light even as things in her life go dark is amazing to watch. She’s a gifted performer, ranging from silly to intense to sublime with a moment’s grace. One doesn’t think of sweet and strong when describing a performer, but it fits Lara perfectly.

Go see it.
