BENJAMIN KATZ certified reviewer June 11, 2023
This show was incredibly inspiring. She's a great actor, and the story is powerful, and as relevant today as 30 years ago when the events took place. I brought my 13 year old daughter, and I know the show made an impression on her that women can indeed do anything.... full review

I Feel the Need is unlike any other biopic. And Loree Draude is the definition of a badass! Loree’s insanely expansive career actually shadows her wit, insights and uncanny ability to story-tell from a perspective that is — quite literally — 30K feet above and 38 years of retrospect. Loree’s whimsical musing on her own history is surprising relatable. She is one of a teeny-tiny handful of aviation pioneers. She has a humility and extreme courage in which precision determines life-or-death. It is a must-see for any female (or any!) young person entering the world of collegiate academia because it toggles hindsight and welcomes you inside tangled crosshairs. It’s a creative immersion into the dilemmas, thrills, disappoi... full review

Loree Draude wrote and performed a remarkable piece! It moved so fast and I felt like I was on the flight deck with her. I was left wanting more stories and insights into the lives of pioneering women Naval Aviators.... full review

Deeply personal, inspiring, & reflective. Loree is a wonderful storyteller, who presents the naked truth of what it’s like to be among the first few women to fly combat jets in the U.S. Navy. The show is hugely entertaining, with a script that is equal parts awe and humor. If you want to see what a woman in a flight suit is capable of doing, besides landing fighter planes on an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, go see “I Feel the Need”, performed by Loree “Rowdy” Draude.... full review

Loree combines her experiences as a fighter pilot, actress, pioneer and story teller to let you feel what it’s like to fly Navy jets. She channels the hardships of training,:exhilaration of the catapult launch, and hand to eye coordination required to land on a carrier at night. More importantly she shares her successes and failures with candidness, honesty and humor. Background videos accentuate her points. Young women, pay attention. Young men take heed. Maverick is Hollywood BS. Rowdy Draude is the real deal. ... full review
