Lebanese Debutante, while culturally specific, is consistently accessible to many different cultures that can relate to the ups and downs, very simply, of living, as this story presents.... full review

This was an incredible show that had me laughing and crying at the same time- a candid and raw recollection of childhood memories peppered with flashbacks to the greatest moments of the 80s and 90s. Definitely a must see for anyone looking to discover homegrown talent and experiential theater. ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2023
Brilliantly cathartic and raw. Chris takes us on a journey of finding self love through hilarious 90s references and relatable familial trauma. She exposes her whole heart on stage and the audience was beyond moved to receive it. Self disclosure and self realization blend together seamlessly. ... full review

LAURA WILEY certified reviewer June 22, 2023
So relatable!!! What a journey back to 1997 told by the dazzling Chris Farah. The use of props and video really painted the picture and gave us a coming of age story we could all identify with. Loved this heartbreaking, vulnerable, comedic tell-all. ... full review

Fantastic show! Chris took me back to the 90s with her solo show. I felt like a good friend going along with the story of Chris' teenage years.... full review

Chris Farah is a very talented, engaging, and downright warm and funny performer. She immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel part of her clique. She talks about the ups and downs and struggles of a teenage life as she is caught between the whiteness of Newport Beach,her own cultural heritage, the culture of the 90's, the lost ending of Models INC, as well as her divorcing parents. THe video proof of how teenage dreams can really go sideways might be one of the funnies thing I've seen in years. And the beauty of what Chris does is she never makes you feel pity, she just make you empathize and feel included. Its a wonderful show. ... full review

MELANIE EHRLICH certified reviewer June 21, 2023
I loved Leb Deb! Anyone who's had to navigated a "hyphenated-American" identity, lived through the 90s, or been inclined to defy expectations will relate to Chris's stories. Chris made me both laugh and cry inside of an hour. A beautiful, funny show!... full review
