An incredible story, equal parts funny and moving. It's truly courageous for Marla to tell this personal story and I'm so glad she did. ... full review
JIM HANNA certified reviewer June 25, 2019
The limitlessly engaging Marla Black has written a charming, hilarious, and sometimes terrifying show that's step above most of those in the genre. Her relationships within her family are fascinating and heart-breaking, but it was the final notes with her most cherished sled dog that got me most choked up. (Spiiirriittt! Nooooo....)... full review

I loved this show. It was laugh-out-loud funny at times but also a story that brought me to tears. Marla is a natural born storyteller. Don’t miss it!... full review

I thought the show was fantastic. Marla's ease with slipping between comedy and tragedy had me on the edge of my seat. She is an amazing performer and I would love to see the show again. ... full review
LIANA MESAIKOU certified reviewer June 10, 2019
Marla is an exceptionally gifted story-teller. I really enjoyed the ease of the performance. The story introduced me to a world that was completely foreign to me. Even though it was deeply personal, it still touched upon universal themes (belonging, finding your pack etc.). The balance between the humor of the first part and the darkness towards the end was admirable. ... full review

It's deeply personal look into her upbringing in a house that embraces pack structure. But also so much more. Marla Black takes with her for her triumphs and defeats, her thrills and dangers, and her incredible journey to find a pack of her own. Marla's simple charm is disarming, and you are pulled along for the ride. The show was both everything and nothing like I thought it would be. I loved being part of her pack for a little while. ... full review
PETE SCHWARTZ certified reviewer June 10, 2019
Marla tells a moving story with a few unexpected twists and a lot of humor + heart. She's got a lot of great visual aids too - photos, hand drawn caricatures, stuffed animals - to help carry her tale. I don't know much about the world of dog sledding, so it was cool to learn a thing or two - Marla did a good job of weaving interesting facts seamlessly into her performance. ... full review
