What I liked
The impersonations of every character were very effective. She even impersonated a carrot that she was to buy in the marketplace as if it talked and had emotions. The show was very moving and funny.
What I didn't like
Some of the transitions from one time and place or character to another could have been smoother and at times she could have taken more time for some transitions so that the audience could feel the emotions. However, I felt that overall Azo was successful in conveying her emotions especially at the end where we as the audience got to see how she hated to leave a place where she had made so many friends and learned so much.
My overall impression
I loved Azo’s one woman show. Each character came vividly alive in her performance. Her joy and enthusiasm about Morocco and its people came thru her performance.
First coming to a small Moroccan village and the culture shock of poverty and language differences then the faux pas that inevitable occurred as a result of not knowing the do’s and don’ts of life in an Islamic village were hilarious and endearing. Bravo, Azo! My husband, Glenn, and I really loved the experience and we felt that we really were transported to another time and country.
