Incredible show and audience performance. I loved how she used tape to symbolize self doubt. I was uncomfortable and excited every time she came near. Claire is great at embodying characters and fully committing to their physicality. She is funny in an absurd, fearless, unmatched way. See this show! ... full review

Impressed! Unpredictable, honest, and engaging. "A Restrospection" had me reflecting on my own existence, as I saw Claire portray hers. There was much honesty through her unique lenses of comedy, drama and singing. There is a tinderbox in her heart and she let us see some of it.... full review

Such a fantastic artist and one of the best pieces I’ve seen. Claire is so intense but keeps you safe which makes her show even more enticing and riveting while you watch or perhaps participate. She will not let you down. I’ve seen this show twice now and I’ve cried each time. She brings forth such emotional vulnerability in all the rainbows of emotions. Absolutely incredible to watch. If you haven’t seen her work I highly recommend you go see it any time you can. She is a MASTER. ... full review

Claire is such a captivating performer. I could not take my eyes off of her whether in the uncomfortable moments, the beautiful, the obscene. Surreal, bizarre, vulnerable, hilarious... Claire has an uncanny ability to draw us into her unique world, one where we have no idea what will happen at the next turn, but are evermore enthralled.... full review

A Retrospection is a brilliant piece of theatre. There are not words to express how blown away I was by this show. Truly spectacular. It was weird, creative, vulnerable, fresh, honest, quirky, wild, and hysterical. It made me cry. My face hurt from laughing. I felt privileged to sit in the room and witness Claire's art with an audience, she is a tour de force. One of my favorite shows at the Fringe this year, DO NOT MISS IT!... full review
