What I liked

I loved the theme of the entire show and related to many aspects of it, as a child of immigrants myself (despite coming from a different culture). The pacing of the show was perfect and kept me engaged the whole time. Verenice’s aristry is on full display in this show :)

What I didn't like

One of the later times she put the graduation gown back on, I was confused as to whether she was portraying her brother, herself, or someone else. Perhaps having a different colored gown would help to differentiate the characters – especially since that last time ended up being about The Graduada and her stepping into her power.

My overall impression

Gripping from the very first spoken word piece! Verenice’s rawness and authenticity radiates throughout the show as she dives into the complexities of post-grad life and the perspectives from various family members. She portrays each character with a distinct voice, with an openness and honesty that brings the audience into her world and makes us root for her happiness and self-actualization.
