GREG ALARCON certified reviewer July 05, 2019
The show was extremely well done, thoughtful, funny, sad, and ultimately, inspirational. Jeannette Rizzi has crafted a sensitive story from her life and made it relatable to an audience. Jeannette use of voices and accents make it easy to visualize the story. She as a wonderful presence that makes her story consistently compelling.... full review

I laughed, I cried, I laughed again, I cried some more, and I left with a smile on my face. Jeannette Rizzi’s talent is unmistakable as she skillfully captures the voices and personalities of those who have shaped her into the person she is today—from her best friend Katie, whose suicide shook Jeannette to her core, to Flash, a wiener dog who calls it as he sees it. Blindsided is a terrific, thought-provoking show.... full review

Jeannette's perspective and moving performance is resonating with me and touched home in many ways. She taught me some important things about myself that were therapeutic. Jeannette has a way of making each character real to life, which make you laugh and cry and agree. Her creative descriptions of the mentality of the church and the behaviors of humans towards each other, remind you that we all want the same respect, honor, integrity and loyalty. I left the show wanting to hear the rest of her story and share mine, and an understanding of what a brilliant talent she is, to teach us through her pain. Rebecca... full review

LISA ROWLEY certified reviewer June 24, 2013
I was lucky enough to see the closing night performance of a sold-out run at Hollywood Fringe of "Blindsided". Jeannette Rizzi is funny, witty and vulnerable with a smile that physically draws you to her. A great one-woman show. Remember that name, you'll see it again!... full review

ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 20, 2013
A warm hearted thought provoking story of a woman's journey from childhood to adulthood. It is vey funny, cleverly written and a tear jerker wrapped into one. I am in awe of what Jeannette Rizzi has gone thru. Most would not have come out of it as brave and still believing in life's possibilities as she has. ... full review
EDEL CORRIGAN certified reviewer June 24, 2013
A one-woman show about the effects of teen suicide doesn’t sound like a rip-roaring night out by any accounts, but Jeanette Rizzi’s ‘Blindsided’ manages to straddle the line between funny and tragic with a grace unexpected. Beginning with ‘outcast’ Jeanette’s upbringing as a daughter of a monk and a nun (both, she hastens to add, well out of the orders before embarking on the baby-making), and as a full-blooded Italian in the ‘red-neck’ town in Florida where she’s the local ‘milano’ (or machiatto, or marinara, or whatever word the locals confuse for Mulatto), Cher-lover Jeanette knows she’s bound for greater things. Always feeling the odd-one-out, in her family as well as in school, things take a turn for the better when she m... full review
VIRGINIA VAN OSDEL certified reviewer June 24, 2013
What a performance! Jeannette Rizzi takes us through the universal traumas of growing up "different" as an Italian in a redneck town. Her journey from an abused teenager, to a strong confident woman gives everyone hope. The tragedy of her best friend's suicide is one that we all can relate to, and seeing how she has used the pain to create such a jubilant piece of theater makes this a wonderful and entertaining evening! ... full review
