    This is an amazing one-woman show about a real person about whom we we really should know more, considering her role in Naval and computer science history. Jennifer O'Grady has created a multidimensional, very real character who jumps out of the history books and thoroughly entertains.

    I love when I'm entertained and also learn something historic. It's like that extra something that elevates works to a higher level...taking us places we never knew we wanted to go and couldn't go on our own. I love how Grace's professional experience of life informs the context of her transition from this existence to her next. I love that she found herself in a position, during her transition, to share with us and did so with humor and, well, grace! Well done Jennifer!

    History buffs will adore galore. There just isn't a better way to bring these great figures to life. I knew nothing about Grace Hopper but now I'm glad I do. Thank you!
