LARA REPKO certified reviewer June 10, 2019
This show needs to be seen by every 20-something creative new to the industry. I seriously think Lisa needs to bring this to colleges, especially acting schools. It will save a lot of eager hopefuls (like myself) from being hurt by preying creeps!! ... full review

A powerful, heartfelt, inspiring and also, funny, show. Lisa shares it all and takes us on a journey of the sexual landscape in Hollywood. Very entertaining, thought provoking, beautiful and heart breaking. ... full review

Lisa's performance was infectious, powerful, funny, charming and vulnerable. She swept us away into song, and kept us on the edge of our seats as she told the stories of dealing with the casting couch creeps of Hollywood as she was pursuing acting as a young woman in Hollywood. ... full review

CHRISTINE GOFF certified reviewer June 28, 2019
Although I am not an actress and never experience the "casting couch", Lisa's experiences are so relatable. From naivete to resounding womanhood, Lisa owns the stage and makes us all laugh in spite of the painful realities that woman in Hollywood and beyond face.... full review

What a sad truth this show portrays: it’s hard for anyone to make it in the Hollywood business, but Lisa tells what it’s like to be wanted for looks and sex, not for talent. This show was funny, truthful, and insightful on what it’s like to pursue the actors dream. ... full review
MARNIE OLSON certified reviewer July 17, 2019
A sometimes uncomfortably sad, sometimes bitingly funny and nearly always poignant journey through the sexual landscape of Creeptown - I mean, Hollywood. ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 09, 2019
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
CHRISTINE DEITNER certified reviewer June 09, 2019
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
ANN-MARIE LARICCIA certified reviewer June 10, 2019
A cautionary tale, shared with humor and wisdom, for anyone who has dream. One woman's story of navigating her way through all the "I can make you a star" offers, which always come with strings attached. Plus, a little celebrity gossip!... full review
