What I liked

I have to say that the absolute high point for me was when Jannica embodied the characters of her eyebrows, eyelashes, and hair – comedic brilliance!
And the staging was smooth and solid. I highly recommend the play.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

This was a lovely, empowering piece. Jannica Olin is a skillful and talented actor who seamlessly carried the audience along with her in her journey through her loss and rediscovery of feminine identity.
At one point, Jannica decides to shave her hair completely. I cried as I remembered cutting my mother’s hair when she had cancer and how she wept as I did and told me that her femininity was being taken away. This piece explores the absurdity of how important hair is to a woman’s self worth.
