What I liked

She took me into each story as if I was right there with her. Great balance of light-heartedness & deep thinking. Great coordination with visual aid and sound effect.

What I didn't like

Nothing that I can think of!

My overall impression

Miyo’s performance was exquisite from start to finish. Her story was filled with humor and humanity about what it is like to live in the United States as Japanese. She took us to the Hollywood bowl, Seoul, Mexico, and Hiroshima Japan. Each story brought so many laughs and smiles Sometimes deep and touching. Her unique perspective and unexpected twist were delightful. Beautiful visuals, sound effects, and use of space added a lot to her vibrant storytelling! I left the theater energized and happy! Thank you, Miyo!
