What I liked

I was impressed by the many audio and lighting cues throughout the show. Glad she used video also. The cues also included an updating of the money she spent on the cult. It was VERY EFFECTIVE to see that go up endlessly in the show. I correctly predicted it would hit about a million dollars before the end.

What I didn't like

One light flickered sometimes as some of the LED’s did not work reliably but that is not her fault it is … surprise … YOURS! I think the “going insane” sequence might work better if she literally said she was being driven insane. But that is nit picking.

My overall impression

I was afraid a “one person show” would be another self absorbed thing I have sat through that actors put on. For the first few minutes it was about her family and not Scientology and I was concerned. but that ended up just setting the scene and 95% of the show was about Scientology. Her hyperactive delivery and playing of various roles was quite impressive.
