What I liked

I enjoyed the theme of family conflicts that we all go through, packaged in such a creative, raw and authentic 30 minutes. We as audience members are mesmerized by her. I could not look away and will be back to see it again, just to catch every bit of her spirit.

What I didn't like

There is nothing I would improve. In my opinion this show is perfection. Her performance does not miss a beat or millisecond, in constant motion internally and externally, it is utter brilliance

My overall impression

Barbara’s show is 30 minutes long, but she conveys the entire spectrum of the human condition in that expertly crafted 30 minutes. I is hands down a masterclass on acting! She is funny, she is sensitive, she is fierce, we follow her she through naivety, heart break, jadedness, joy, and everything in-between. The direction is clear and distinctly present in the piece. You can see the threads of Barbara and Debra’s collective work. This piece is clearly a creation of love between these two magnificent women.
