MARY NUNEZ certified reviewer July 16, 2022
Funny and witty yet vulnerable. Somehow Lindsay gets you to laugh and cry within the same sentence. A clever way to bring you along the struggle and life of an aspiring actress from Essex. A real joy to watch and I only wish it was longer.... full review

**PICK OF THE FRINGE** This show has categorically marked Lucas-Bartlett out as 2022’s biggest star – a formidably assured performer with a delightfully absurdist streak. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐... full review

LAURA STEELE certified reviewer June 28, 2022
Highly entertaining - over too soon! A personal deep dive that is by turns hilarious, reflective, touching, sad and triumphant. So relatable that you feel part of the actor's life almost immediately. Truly enjoyable.... full review

Lindsay Lucas-Bartlett's one-woman show is an honest, clever, and sensitive coming-of-age tale told with charisma and charm. Lucas-Bartlett gets vulnerable in the sweetest of ways and holds your hand through the hardest moments of her life before setting you free to celebrate her achievements and growth right along with her. This debut (non)musical sings in its simplicity and the ease with which its star transports us through the phases of her life and all the love and loss one experiences along the way.... full review

Loved this show so much. Felt very much like stepping into someone else’s shoes and getting to experience life through their eyes. I teared up a bit from Lindsay’s authentic and powerful expressions of her experiences, and also laughed through her wit and dry humor. She has a wonderful voice as well and the hilarious short songs were a fun addition. I’d recommended this to anyone who can handle a few curse words haha! Great show. ... full review

Loved this show! Lindsay bravely shares her most personal, formative stories with humor and creativity. My favorite parts were her original songs featuring her beautiful voice and sly lyrics. Despite difficult topics, her joy and comedic timing shine through! ... full review
DAVE GOLDFARB certified reviewer June 20, 2022
I loved this one-woman show! It was funny and clever, and because it is based on the actress' real life, incredibly moving. The actress is supremely talented, able to portray herself distinctly, at various stages in her life. Several layers of her developing personality and womanhood are deftly differentiated with sublime subtlety. Changing out of pig tails is just icing on the cake. :-) "Talented" changes to "multi-talented" when she breaks into song, which occurs a few times in this production. Her lovely singing voice accents the profound and relatable lyrics, which often hit close to home. The 45-minute program is a mini tour-de-force that truly showcases a genuinely engaging performer. ... full review
