What I liked

While I don’t say this often, it has to be said here – this show and the performer display Masterclass level ACTING! The fact that Juan Francisco Villa is able to embody each relative, not only full-body physicality, but in voice, intonation, status, etc. is really like watching a professional do what they do best! I’m still blown away…

What I didn't like

No doubt, this could be a 90-minute show easily – I could have watched much longer and much more.

My overall impression

This was transformative story-telling and one of the most amazing solo shows I have ever seen! Honestly, I was blown away by the level of writing, direction, design elements and the enormous acting chops that were on full display (courtesy of Juan Francisco Villa)! WOW!!! What. A. Show.
