Vanessa is a great storyteller. Her writing and performance showed the complexity of the vulnerability and strength it takes to grow into a woman. Her little girl is amazing and her woman is true beauty. ... full review

A fantastical and beautiful story that takes us on a journey through time and space, all aboard VanessAir. We get to fly back to Vanessa's past as we learn about her constant moving around the world; the constant uprooting and the effects that had on her. Vanessa is an amazing writer and beautiful storyteller. Her vulnerability is absolutely beautiful and powerful. ... full review

With boundless, almost phrenetic energy, Vanessa Boss commands the stage in this coming of age story peopled with many colorful fairy tale-like characters from her psyche. Her movement in and out of these characters is an impressive emotionally acrobatic feat.... full review

A raw and emotional performance that truly tells the performer — Vanessa Boss’s — life story. Boss is an incredible actor who confidently weaves many themes and emotions into her work. I am floored by how much story she was able to put into this one show. She really laid it all out there!!... full review

SUSY PORTER certified reviewer June 24, 2019
A well written, expertly acted play that pulls the audience in through universal emotional themes- a story of healing, growth and sensitivity. Vanessa's characters express the inner monologues we all wrestle with, at times hilarious, vicious, kind, supportive or weepy. She masterfully reveals how life experiences can create these voices and how to address and heal them. Inspirational, entertaining, and skillfully written and performed. I love it and highly recommend seeing this show!... full review
