A confessional slash personal journey of gathering the courage to hold a harasser accountable, presented with humor and abundant energy.... full review

Catherine did such a wonderful job talking/singing about experiences that happen all the time to woman and also the guilt when we break our own boundaries! ... full review

Catherine Barnes's "Yes, No, Maybe So?" was hilarious. Performing about a complex subject (consent) while making it approachable and comical truly shows the talent and intelligence of the show's author. Catherine took the audience on a journey of consent, the different forms and unique approaches to each situation. The show was self reflective while commenting on broader social issues all wrapped up in a comical bundle.... full review

Catherine is a talent that I think with more shows (since this was her last) and more audience (people need to see her, she has such a unique voice) she would really shine. She is so talented and gives a great performance showcasing her many talents, songwriting, percussion, and comedy. I think this run was a great start and hope she continues to polish her solo show and perform it beyond the Hollywood Fringe. ... full review

I thought Catherine brought to life such an interesting and vulnerable topic of consent and what that can really mean. Also, she shared how a person's reaction in these situations may not be as cut and dry as we might think. Great show and very thought provoking!!!!... full review

I will admit the fact Yes, No, Maybe So lists itself as a solo musical gave me pause. But less than five minutes in that worry evaporated. Instead I simply went along for the ride, one woman's journey into that most heady of all adventures--making a decision. Catherine Barnes' show (developed and directed with Jessica Lynn Johnson) focuses on a medical exam which proves very creepy indeed, and then Barnes must figure out what to about this. Because the creepiness in this case went beyond a few of the lines that medical professionals should not cross. Yet, hasn't everyone been rude or creepy sometime? Aren't there more serious problems the powers that be should address? How much time and effort will be needed to even start the proces... full review

KEVIN NEIGHBORS certified reviewer August 08, 2021
Yes no maybe so is courageous as Heck! After an uncomfortable doctors visit, we dive in with Catherine into her childhood and awkward and sometimes scary experiences with consent, along with her inner bitch and the hilarious professor Sarah P. Outrage. The best part is that it is a musical. Being a percussionist Catherine uses her body for acoustic percussions while she entertains and it is something you can peel your eyes away from... full review
LARRY DAVIDSON certified reviewer August 07, 2021
The show dealt with the timely subject of consent and boundaries in a presentation that was thought provoking and entertaining. Catherine did fantastic work in playing over a dozen characters all with distinct voices and physical mannerisms. The songs were catchy and funny. She used a variety of storytelling techniques to make for a fast moving constantly entertaining life story.... full review
