What I liked

We all have those self-critics that ride around on our shoulders and get in our way. Mary Lee knocked ’um off one at a time and she was the last one standing in the room. This show is well-written, performed, and directed. Thank you, team.

What I didn't like

I found little to fault. There was a moment or two that I felt that she was pushing a little, but it smoothed out very quickly.

My overall impression

Mary Lee gave us a wonderful performance, thoroughly entertaining with lots of laughs and a few tears. As a dad, we always wonder how were our efforts received and how did our offspring turn out once we can no longer observe them. The variety of characters who were on et, all played by writer/star Mary Lee, were distinct and each had their own voice, body language, and personality. This was a great way to spend Sunday afternoon, or any other time. See Diary, before it goes back on the shelf.
