JULIE SOTO certified reviewer June 12, 2014
Katie definitely takes the audience on a journey in this delightful 1 woman show. While absolutely a comedy, Katie is able to weave in moments of heartbreaking loneliness and isolation. There is never a second where she begins "acting." Katie is an amazing performer that I'm sure will keep you entertained. ... full review

Wow, Katie Rubin is amazing in this one woman show that explores her journey to finding her spiritual truth. Her energy, talent and depth really shine. She embodies 10 different characters and you forget she is the same person. She manages to take very raw and difficult subject matter and infuse it with a comedic touch. Don't miss this one. It's stellar and she leaves it all on the stage.... full review

True catharsis!Must be seen! I laughed out loud and silently sobbed. The clarity of character was engaging and inspiring. So much detail in movement and voice. Transitions were seamless and her struggle spoke to so many levels in my life. ... full review

I was blown away by the story-line. The actress’s acting was as good as her writing! Actress Katie Rubin was so committed to the different characters she played, that I could happily see her one day in her own televised solo lead show, raking in the audience. The writing tackled the true to life spiritual journey of an actress, and the many different ups and downs that come with illumination. I found it touching, hilarious, and would definitely recommend her acting and writing talent. Well done as well to the director, for helping bring all the extraordinary facets to such vivid life.... full review

Sunday, Jun 29th 2014 performance. I went to see this play on the insistent recommendation of a world traveled friend of mine who rarely gives high marks to anything. I brought two other professional friends, both male. Two of us have acting, writing, stage, and TV production background and fancy ourselves informed critics, the other is a doctor in brain research from France. We all had a wonderful time, laughed, and talked about moments from the play for hours afterwards. What Katie Rubin has created is a subtle, unpredictable, entertaining romp through the common dilemmas of quest in life, dissatisfaction, faith, disillusionment, and the threads that bind us together as human beings. To say that she has energy, talent, and is entertaining ... full review
