COMMENTS:

This show falls into the plethora of one-woman shows in this years Fringe Festival NYC. It tells the tragic yet funny story of a woman growing up with odd parents and family values. Most of the one woman show addresses these same topics, however, this show was not as intriguing. It was so long that I had trouble following what was happening. The more successful shows just pulled excerpts from the true life of the performers and ended in about an hour. This show just rambled on about her life story without much rhyme or reason.
