APRIL WISH certified reviewer June 25, 2019
This show is smart and quick and led us down a path that I found to be incredibly brave - and also surprising. It so brilliantly moves from broad, big, safer concepts into more intimate, raw and personal memories meticulously, peeling back time and layers of understanding- always digging deeper and revealing more as she went. The structure was impeccable and it was so brilliantly executed, with specificity of movement and polish. And that polish does not get in the way of her vulnerability and authenticity - what a talent!... full review

The vulnerability of Amanda's story is both relatable and endearing. We root for Mandy right out of the gate, as she takes us on her version of the ride to empowerment and self-acceptance that just about every human being experiences in their own way. We see ourselves in Mandy, and she gives us hope. ... full review

Amanda is a talented performer and simply fascinating to watch. Her character work is subtle and distinct, a difficult combination to master. I loved the lengths she admits to going to find inner peace, and how at ease and happy she is on stage. It’s truly a winning show, and I hope she takes it all the way to the top!... full review

Amanda is a storyteller, actress, singer, and amazing entertainer. I found myself laughing out loud, crying or feeling as if I was living her story. ‘Mandy Picks a Husband’ is a powerful and vulnerable story and couldn’t be more relevant to the awakening that is happening today around how we protect our girls and what it means to be worthy as an adult woman. This is a story that needs to be heard.... full review
SALLY WELLER certified reviewer June 11, 2019
Amanda is a musical gem. She sings her way through the disheartening, sometimes treacherous, hilarious, gut-wrenching landscape of the single woman's plight to finding true love. What she ends up discovering (spoiler alert!) is her strength, self worth, and a wicked sense of humor. Sally Weller... full review
