    I love this play about finding your voice.

    It’s also about how others may not be who you think they are.

    I also love the themes of pretend and not belonging.

    It’s also about the expectations that society unfairly places upon many and figuring that out as you grow up and seek out identity.

    This play has real stakes.

    Hurst’s humor is amazing.

    I also like the part that involves different kinds of creatures needing each other and collaborating to solve a problem.

    This is an excellent play for all ages.

    You will go on an adventure!

    I love this theme of no longer being the nice girl and of something good coming out of COVID-19.

    Wow. So vulnerable and well-written. A real piece of authentic theatre history and also very current. So real and a fantastic story of two true friends and sobriety. I feel that this play will go far. Riveting. Also a great story about what it means to live and do the work. Visceral, heart-wrenching, thought-provoking; I'll be thinking about this one for a while. Can't wait to see it onstage. A great statement about the theatre & film business as well. You find the light in the darkness in this show.

    I love this play. It captures so much about the importance of childhood and the familiar and the meaning of home.
