    Wow, what a beautiful play. A fantastic, natural-voiced Hailey tells us a unique story, one that would resonate beautifully not only with the younger generation, but with everyone. It's a beautifully crafted play about a young woman learning about herself--and maybe she doesn't understand everything she's learned, but some day, the lessons that Betty has taught her are going to have a major impact on her life. A truly marvelous play that accomplishes so much in ten tight pages. Wonderful.

    Music is the balm that heals the soul and certainly in this O'Grady gem, an adage that holds up under the poetry of this family drama of a daughter coming to terms with her parent's divorce and the realization that new beginnings are just around the corner for us all---along with a great song.
