Excellent! This show was better than I'd hoped it would be from the fun music that had me bobbing my head before the show even started to Ella Turenne's enthusiastic, energetic entrance. This spirited pep kept a smile on my face throughout except when Ella treated us to intimate heartache and hardships in her life which she presented with pure vulnerability and grace.... full review

I always knew how much work black women and girls could put into their hair. What I didn't understand is why. This show does a GREAT job at showing the depths hair decisions have for many in that community and how those play out either consciously or unconsciously. Being a white male with a close shaved haircut, I don't think I'll ever grasp the full of scope of this topic, but because of this show I definitely have a greater understanding of it.... full review

As a woman with naturally curly hair who suffered the indignities of what had to be done to keep it straight and in style during my teen years, I certainly appreciate the sentiments Ella Turenne expressed during her show, "Love, Locs & Liberation." Her goal as a big and beautiful black woman was to share how spiritually uplifting it becomes when you realize you are not your hair, but the soul within that shines brightly no matter what may cover your head. Navigating the tale from her decision to undergo "The Big Chop" and become bald after an unfortunate experience after a perm, Turenne takes us on a journey through the many people in her life that each had an opinion about her hair and how to handle it, always keeping in mind to do your h... full review

SACHA ELIE certified reviewer · June 09, 2018
This show is fun, sincere, and one that everyone can relate too. I laughed, and cried, her accent of her Haitian mother is one for the books, Don't get me started on her acting. She effortlessly went through different characters, Ella gives a tour de force performance. Its no wonder she is a scholarship winner! Excellent show! Go to the show, Go to the show!! ... full review
