SHARI BARRETT broadway world la, culver city news certified reviewer June 02, 2023
This talented ensemble shared stories of their personal experiences growing up as South Asian American women with movement well directed by Marianne Davis. With each being raised in different parts of the world, be it in America or elsewhere, as their stories were told you really got a sense of their identities as well as how all women should look at their bodies without shame.

Congrats ladies on a marvelously entertaining and educational show!... full review

What a show! These four women take you on an incredible journey through the lives and struggles and it is brilliant. You get such an view of what they dealt with, what probably so many women deal with, and it is not only emotional, but hilarious and strong. Each actress brings to the piece something different, allowing us to get several perspectives on the subject of their Yoni. And even for a guy, it is a relatable and wonderful thing to see. I highly recommend this piece to everyone!... full review
