I like Lara. This is a young woman who lays it all out there. Yet, she tells this difficult story with such playfulness and zeal. There are a good ten or more characters that she dives into with wild abandon – and this character work alone would have made for an extremely entertaining show. But she went further. Forget about breaking down the fourth wall, she broke down the fifth… That wall that shields her soul from torment and humiliation. This armor of hers came off at the end of this beautiful young girl’s story in such genuine moment that I didn’t feel like I was watching a one-woman Fringe show, I was sitting with a brave, fragile confidant who tenderly needed an ear.
What I didn't like
Well, her love life, obviously…
My overall impression
A wonderful, yet brutally honest performance that dove much, much deeper than I had any reason to expect.
