What I liked

Kristina Mueller is a force of an actress. Her vocal control, character creation, and transitions between comedy and tragedy were pure genius. She is a fantastic actress. Tinks Lovelace masterfully exploited the entire stage with elegant and effortless blocking. I especially appreciated the use of light to control time, space, and mood. Troy Deutsch’s writing sounded like poetry coming out of Mueller’s mouth. This solo show is not to be missed. What a ride, a journey, and a release.

What I didn't like

Flawless from top to bottom.

My overall impression

This is not just another Trump-bashing tirade. This is the type of modern day American mythology that lifts our collective pain and confusion about the current state of affairs and raises it to healing hilarity while also forcing us all to confront our own implications in the rise of a dictator.
