My overall impression

When I first heard about this show, I expected it to be a fluffy instructive time about the woes of Africans and AIDS from an over-privileged white girl.

What I found was quite the contrary: a truthful retelling of a girl’s heartbreaking journey with a huge side of snark—just how I like it.

At first, Ms. Alfinito is a little bit rough and gruff around the edges, but in the end it’s all part of her charm. I think she could win over the most platonic audience member with her wonderful vulnerability and honesty.

This show is a MUST see! Do not miss it—so rarely can you find a solo show that actually moves you and isn’t simply a chance for a theatrically neglected person to get on stage and whine. There is a wonderful story to be told here.
