Jannica has a creative way of beginning the play that I haven’t seen any solo artists do before. I loved the many different wigs and the sequence in which she tried them all on to show how each one was a new personality. The character of Google was hilarious and on-point. Eyebrow and eyelash were clever and so adorable. The feather boa was perfect for eyelash! I so appreciated that she ended the play on a hopeful note that left us wanting to accept ourselves more than we did before when we walked into the room. This show is perfect for college or high school audiences. Especially high school, when teenagers are just beginning to find their identities.
Heather takes an often taboo subject that no one ever talks about and places it front and center. She is at ease on the stage and has no problem switching between characters. Heather has this maternal nature that makes you wanna run on stage and give her a big ol’ hug! Also, I’ve never seen a solo show without a narrator that appears throughout the show and so I thought Heather’s decision to not have one was really cool, unique, and makes her show stand out.
I LOVE that Lisa dived straight into her sexual fantasies and explorations as a child. No one ever really talks about how young girls have sexual feelings and it was a cathartic relief to see her unabashedly talk about these feelings. The accompanying videos were so perfect, light-hearted, and so clever that the audience couldn’t help but burst into laughter. The Ken dolls doing the dance while all lined up together…now that cracked me up! SPOILER ALERT: When Lisa stands Center Stage and proclaims that she is taking the stage again I just about keeled over with awe. What an empowering, tear-jerking way to end the show on a hopeful note!
