Brace for reviews!

See what I did there with brace-lets???? I am so Wonder Woman! I am currently spinning! And not to transform into a powerful Amazon, because let’s face it I already am one! No I’m spinning and leaping and smiling from two great reviews! I know. I know. One should not need outside or critic/s praise to validate them artistically! BUT still, a nice review is a great feeling. AND I do need pulls for when I take this show on even more roads! The two so far came from the Orlando Weekly an the Orlando Sentinel

”an energetic and entertaining piece of theater whose greatest achievement might be shedding light on an unsung part of history without feeling like a lecture. You’ll laugh throughout but a little while afterward, you might find yourself contemplating how marginalized groups are left out of the “official” historical record. And you’ll certainly tip the next time you’re at a drag show.”

“Fabulously Fierce. Mo-mo is an enlightening and entertaining introduction to a topic deserving of more attention”

Funny. Some friends thought I’d be upset because both reviewers thought the narrator was the weakest part of the show.I totally disagree. I think it grounds the play and shapes it. I don’t know if you know this but my artistic skin is pretty much armor. Hence the image! I mean over the years I have been ripped by press and people and I’m still fucking here! (sing follies now) and I ain’t going anywhere bitches! Except to hell in a handbasket filled with vodka and sexy devils! Trust. And besides I am so grateful I even got a review! When I did the show at Hollywood Fringe reviewers came and one only talked about the space and the other’s never got printed: she called out a show for homophobia and the theatre pulled rank and had them not print it!! So suffice to say FUCKING FNALLY! Also, and I know this sounds like bullshit, sometimes when you read a gushing review you’re like Really? I mean come on. Nothing is perfect. Unless it’s so banal it beiges you into smiling. Now if I get a gushing review I might change my mind HA HA HA But I am pleased as punch. Oh and Orlando Fringe s super fun! I wish Hollywood Fringe had a lawn party every night!!! So glad I made this happen!
