Nicole's artistry and talent is indisputable. She takes you on a ride throughout her childhood to present day and by the end of the play, I was left in tears with a softened heart because her performance and story touches you to the core. Her bravery, willingness and authenticity is so inspiring and very relatable. I'm so grateful I got to see this show. It left me not only feeling inspired, but reminded me how important it is to live your truth, accept who you are and why storytelling/art is so important. You must see! ... full review

Courageous and phenomenal. A truly inspirational story that required the artist to be truly vulnerable to share such a personal and touching story of growing up in a Christian cult. Although a unique experience, the artist made things relatable so anyone could understand and feel what she went through in a sincere and honest way. A one-woman show, the production never stalled and the direction kept the storytelling fresh and dynamic. I was captivated throughout and found this to be one of the more entertaining things I've experienced this year (includes film and tv).

Nicole bravely shares herself with the audience with irresistible energy. She has crafted such a dynamic piece of theatre. A one person show is incredibly difficult to develop and to maintain the interest of the audience from beginning to end but she has achieved it and clearly had a very skilled director on board. It was such a pleasure and honor to be entrusted with her story and inspiring to see what she has turned her experience into. ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 19, 2019
This was an amazing experience so truthful to the soul of the performer that it woke the audience up from their miasma of daily life in a toxic city. Nicole brought life and her spirit to Temple Tantrum , and nothing was left off the table. Rarely do we see or experience stories routed in the human experience without it being doctored by marketers, editing, special effects, or as of recently artificial intelligence. This was a show I will remember for a long time, and will hold in my memory as an experience beyond many I have seen on stage and screen.... full review

I absolutely loved this solo show! Nicole surpasses all of my expectations. I had a feeling it would be good, but she pretty much blew me away! I tried really hard not to cry but she got me, as she did much of the audience who were moved by her authenticity. ... full review
