What I liked

It was very uplifting, even though there was a lot of sadness. The cast did a wonderful job of getting their deep feelings across about the people they were talking about. I also loved that they told their stories in second-person, as if they were talking directly to the people In their stories, yet addressing the audience at the same time.

What I didn't like

I liked the technique of having everyone on stage at once and dividing each story into a few lines, so that the audience gets a snippet of each story at a time. But It felt a little disjointed. I would have liked each snippet to last a little longer before jumping to another story. It was sometimes hard to keep up.

My overall impression

This is theatrical storytelling. It reminds me of The Moth stories, except that their were several people telling their true stories — all of them about people they love or who have had positive impacts on their lives. It was very moving.
