Its easy to get audience members to connect to your material
If they've been in similar situations. That process of audience connection I believe is a sure winner. As a theater person though I really do expect for the performer to at least attempt a connection emotionally, to the material. Death, Cancer, and Other Bumps in the Road performed by Laney
Fichera, while it contains heart and emotion, left me feeling like I was at a family event but I wasn't a member of the family. So sorry I crashed the party....
"Death, Cancer & Other Bumps in The Road..." is a play that touched me like no play has in a long time. The performance was exceptional. It was amazing. Both funny and gut wrenching all at the same time. I laughed and I cried...anyone who has ever lost a loved one can not help but be swept away. I recommend that you see it.
Laney takes us on a familar journey through her life. Along the way she enlightens us on her struggles and the resulting effects on her life.
Laney is a gifted storyteller, pulling the audience in through a cosmic connection that makes one feel like they have walked with her on her journey.
Despite the struggles, Laney's show gives hope - of a future free from these bumps in the road and the freedom to enjoy it. I highly recommend this show. ...
