Very entertaining! I really felt like I was on the journey with Ayo to find love. I laughed out loud, I felt her emotions and rooted for her along the way. Her story is relatable and the message is powerful. ... full review

Ayo does excellent character work. I enjoyed the unique way she told her story (at the airport) and how we traveled with her from destination to destination. Ayo is charming, comfortable on-stage, and so fun to watch. I loved the ending - I totally was NOT expecting it at all and I was so touched by her honesty ... full review

Oh my gosh GFS was AMAZING definitely a MUST see! I checked it out last night. Ayo blew me away with her performance! This was my first time seeing a one woman show. I was really impressed to see how she transitioned into each character she portrayed. She also caught me by surprise with her comedic ability. I was in tears from laughter! ... full review

A wonderfully written and brilliantly acted tour-de-force! This is everything a one-person show should be... the audience instantly engaged with the performer, the story was well-structured and the audience was happy to go along on the adventure. I am so thrilled I got to see this show. Ayo Majek created an intimate journey that was not just fun to watch, but the twists and turns were unexpected and tugged at the heartstrings more than once. The direction was pinpoint perfect, and created an entire world on the stage. I hope this show goes on to find more audiences through additional performances; it was a delight and all of the success is well deserved.... full review

How old was I when saw the best show at Hollywood Fringe Festival I’ve ever seen? I was today years old. Ayo Majek’s “Girl From Schenectady“ is too good of a show to be just running In Fringe. It should be running Off-Broadway in NYC. Wonderful writing, extremely well Directed and, most of all incredibly well-acted. An emotionally candid entertaining flight of delight. Extended this week. Go see it - for realz. 👍🏻👍🏻... full review

This one woman performance was engaging. It taught us about another culture, it made us laugh and took our minds away from our troubles. Ayo Majek was indeed magic on the stage. She brought you into her world of hilarity. If asked if I would pay to see it again, there will be resounding YES!!!... full review
