Audience: Hannah Cruz


Nobody's Really Helped Me

This show shines through Lanessa's beautiful grasp and interaction with her audience, playing deft jokes and keen observations in quick shifts from squeaky to sultry, earnest to sly. Her songs are catchy, clever, musically complex, and provide the perfect counterpoint to her endearing and guffaw-inducing anecdotes. In the show's best moments, it feels like listening to your hilarious friend tell you a story you've been dying to hear. Lanessa's ability to share her uncertainty, her vulnerability, and her sharp wit in the midst of it all is a real, rare treat--- one that is definitely worth coming out to see.
