What I liked

Aspy was such a fun character! I also loved the used of a type writer and chair for blocking- that was clever! I can image this was a very vulnerable story to tell of loss and letting go of guilt and forgiveness.. I believe it was a powerful story of how we release the unnecessary burdens we place on ourselves and I commend MaryLee for approaching it with such courage and strength. She is a joy to watch!

What I didn't like

Nada. She’s wonderful.

My overall impression

Mary Lee gracefully moves on the stage telling us the most intimate and hilarious stories and her journey to becoming a writer. More importantly she tells the story of the love from her dad and how to release guilt and learn forgiveness. I laughed, I cried, I was moved. A very touching journey from a fantastic writer and actress.
