Review by KATHY TURNER

June 11, 2012 certified reviewer

My overall impression

I just loved Tonya Meeks and her one-woman show about her mother. Such a nice tribute and performed so visually (even with costume changes!) that I felt like I met her. I laughed and I cried (I hate crying in an open theater with other people around me, but I couldn’t help myself), and imagined how it will be one day when I have to figure out what to save of my own mother’s and if she’ll have a “kids” box somewhere. I won’t be a spoiler, but what a lovely ending. Sometimes I think the people with the most difficult or dysfunctional pasts make the most interesting people – Tonya is definitely interesting and very entertaining. Bravo Tonya, you and your mom are definitely a hit. She would be proud.
