What I liked

I loved the set. The many different levels of the set and how well Brandon utilized them. Nothing was there that wasn’t there for a specific reason. It made sense and it was exactly what was needed to tell the story. And I really loved his different characters and how well he moved through each of them. It was seamless!

What I didn't like

I would reconsider adding a front row of chairs unless you absolutely need to. Due to the way the show is staged, I was in the front row and missed several moments due to the added front row. I feel that maybe adding a couple of seats on the side if necessary, but that front row just kills many of the great moments during Act 1.

My overall impression

Walking into this show, I knew nothing of Brandon, only people telling me that I needed to see it. And they were right. This show is excellent. From the start Brandon takes you right into his problem of looking Indian, but not knowing anything about what it means to be Indian. His script and performance are so on point that you can easily picture every scene he walks into and every character he steps into. His characterizations are just amazing and he shifts between characters with such precision and perfection. His show is hilarious. It’s also extremely honest, vulnerable and unapologetic. His physicalities are just ridiculous. I mean that as a compliment. He moves through dance, martial arts, and physical comedy with such ease. I had so much fun at this show that it was more than obvious why everyone was recommending it to me. Well done!
