CINDY MARIE JENKINS certified reviewer June 18, 2012
Watching this show, I found myself suspended somewhere between a guffaw and gasp of horror the entire time. Szathmari has an insane ability to draw you into these incredibly different characters's greatest desires, teach some history and give a really good yank at your guts. A work-in-progress, I couldn't stop thinking about it for hours afterwards, and honestly still don't feel like I have fully digested it. It was such a great meal that I plan to go back for seconds. I strongly suggest you see this show, and in true form to its setting of Vegas, have a stiff drink or two beforehand. ... full review

I'm always a little skeptical of one person shows, but this one drew me in immediately. She has beautifully woven together the stories of two women trying to break into show business in Las Vegas in the 1950's. A captivating story teller, I quickly forgot there was just one person on the stage. Creative and entertaining, this is a show that deserves some attention.... full review

This is a story about 2 very different African American women trying to make it in show business in an era that was extremely racist . Jacquetta did a great job showing the trails and tribulations that this women had to go through to find acceptance . The show is a very interesting history lesson on the way things were in Las Vegas in the 1950s. It's a fun show. Go see it !... full review

This was both touching and hilarious. The Harriet Tubman burlesque pretty much says it all. ... full review
