I really enjoyed the show and thought the Barbie dolls used throughout added a lot of comic relief! Loved hearing about the famous people! Loved her coming of age candor. Delightful, heartfelt and fun.... full review

As one might expect from any piece that explores what it means to be a young actress in Hollywood there are some salacious stories shared here but all of them only serve to illustrate what it must have felt like to be the subject of these misadventures and we only learn the names of two out of the three [let's just call them] culprits in final moments that underscore just how overdue change really is in the entertainment industry. Throughout, Ms. Verlo shape shifts into different characters and makes great use of Barbie and Ken in videos that complete the experience and highlight the funnier beats. She successfully poses questions about the way we assess and label female sexuality by examining her own experiences and yes, digs a little bit... full review

What a wonderful and important show. Lisa Verlo is marvelous as she strikes a blow against the misogyny of Hollywood. Her naïveté is charmingly portrayed, and I loved the songs and the use of Barbie and Ken as both metaphor and exemplar. Don’t miss this one. ... full review

This was one woman’s incredible journey but it’s also all of ours. We take these weird encounters as normal in this business, and then one day, we look up and say, “What?! You mean this isn’t normal? Lisa makes it hilarious and empowering. Her original songs belong on Broadway.... full review

Well written, with humor and truth, HOLLYWOODN'T brought back memories of my days working in the modeling industry and though I got away without the usual "Hollywood scars", I was surprised by how close I've gotten to some things that Lisa encountered in her journey, hoping for her big break. I hope that many men will see the show, so they can see how vulnerable women are, and I hope many women will see this show, so they can nod in agreement, and take comfort, that they are not alone in their experiences, no matter where they come from!... full review
